Serious Punishments Require A Serious Legal Team
The primary difference between robbery and burglary is that robbery involves a display of force, where burglary does not. Both charges are serious and the ensuing punishments for conviction have the potential to change your life:
- A robbery with a dangerous weapon is a class D felony, potentially resulting in 51 to 64 months imprisonment.
- Other types of robberies are generally class G felonies, which may result in 10-13 months imprisonment – depending on prior convictions and other circumstances.
- First degree burglaries are a class D felony and may result in 64-80 months imprisonment
- Second degree burglaries are a class G felony and are punishable by 8-31 months imprisonment
