While there are all sorts of robberies that can take place, the general definition remains the same, no matter which state you're in. Robbery is defined as taking something of value from another owner with the intention to deprive or deny that owner of the item that was taken.

If you're caught committing this crime, you'll be left facing some pretty hefty consequences.

Penalties for Robbery in Rhode Island

For anyone facing robbery charges, you're looking at paying expensive fines and also possible jail time as a result. The specific consequences you receive will depend on the value of the property that was stolen. The type of property that was stolen can also influence the penalties you receive. A court will look at all the details surrounding your case in order to determine the punishment that best fits the crime.

There are also degrees of robbery that occur in Rhode Island. You could be charged with misdemeanor robbery if the value of the stolen property was totaled at no more than $500. For committing this crime, you're facing fines of up to $500 and also up to one year in jail. If the value of the stolen property totals more than $500, it is considered a felony. This is punishable by up to 10 years in jail and fines of up to $5,000.

Their are other factors that can increase the penalties you face for committing this crime, including: the use of a weapon during the robbery, and robbery where the victim involved was injured, impaired, or elderly.
