What is Robbery?

Robbery is a severe criminal offense involving the unlawful taking of another person's property through force, intimidation, or threats. In Colorado, robbery is defined under Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) § 18-4-301 and is categorized as a violent crime. There are different elements that the prosecution must prove to establish a robbery charge:

  • Intent: The prosecution must show that the accused intended to deprive the victim of their property permanently.
  • Force or Threats: The accused must have used force, threats, intimidation, or a combination of these actions to take the victim's property.
  • Presence of Victim: The victim must have been present during the robbery, and the property must have been taken directly from the victim or within their immediate presence.

It's important to note that even the mere presence of a weapon during the commission of the robbery, regardless of whether it was used or not, can escalate the charges and lead to more severe penalties.

What are the Penalties for Robbery in Colorado?

The penalties for a robbery conviction in Colorado are severe and can have life-altering consequences. Since robbery is considered a violent crime, the courts treat it seriously. The potential penalties for robbery may include the following:

  • Imprisonment: A conviction for robbery can result in significant prison sentences, ranging from several years to decades, depending on the case's specific circumstances.
  • Fines: The court may impose substantial fines on top of the prison sentence, which can place a heavy financial burden on the convicted individual.
  • Restitution: The court may order the convicted person to pay restitution to the victim, compensating them for any losses or damages resulting from the robbery.
  • Criminal Record: A robbery conviction will leave a permanent mark on your criminal record, making it challenging to secure employment, housing, or educational opportunities in the future.
  • Probation or Parole: In some cases, the court may grant probation or parole as an alternative to or after serving a portion of the prison sentence.
  • Enhanced Penalties: If a deadly weapon was used during the robbery, the charges may be elevated to aggravated robbery, resulting in even harsher penalties.
