First Degree & Second Degree Robbery

Your sentence can depend on a number of things, including whether you’re charged with first degree or second degree robbery. A first degree robbery offense is any robbery that takes place in a home or any inhabited dwelling. First degree robbery also includes robbery of any driver or passenger on a bus, taxi or subway and of any person who has just used an ATM and is still in the vicinity of the ATM.

Sentencing for first degree robbery includes:

  • Up to 9 years in state prison
  • A strike on your criminal record under California’s Three Strikes Law

Second degree robbery is defined as any robbery that does not meet the definition of first degree robbery. Second degree robbery includes the following penalties:
