What is robbery?

Robbery is both a theft crime and a violent crime that involves taking another's property by force or threat. In some cases, a robbery may also be committed by a "sudden snatching" of another's property. In committing a robbery, the offender would use physical force or the threat of injury to the victim in order to make the victim surrender his or her property. Robbery is a felony offense in Georgia, and may be subject to the following penalties:

Robbery - 1 to 20 years in state prison

Robbery of an Elderly Person (65 years or older) - 5 to 20 years in state prison

Armed Robbery (with a weapon, deadly weapon, firearm, or replica of a deadly weapon) - minimum 10 years in prison, or up to 20 years or life imprisonment. The death penalty may even be imposed in some extreme cases.
