Robbery offences carry serious penalties if you are convicted, including the possibility of life imprisonment for the most serious offences. Because a robbery charge is dependent on the use of force or threat of force, the details and supporting evidence are critical to establishing whether the offence is question can truly be classed as robbery, or whether lesser charges, such as theft, are more appropriate.

We can ensure no detail or possible angle of defence is overlooked, helping to see the charges against you dropped wherever possible, or making sure the groundwork is laid for the best possible defence during court proceedings.

Common questions about robbery offences
What is the definition of robbery?
Under the Theft Act 1968, a crime may be considered robbery if:
- A person steals something.
- Immediately before or during the theft, they use force or cause any person to fear that force will be used.
What is the maximum sentence for robbery?
The maximum sentence for robbery or assault with intention to rob is life imprisonment. The circumstances surrounding the crime can be critical to the actual sentence received if convicted, however, so it is essential that all relevant factors be established and effectively presented during court proceedings.
What is armed robbery?
There is no specific offence for ‘armed robbery’ in England and Wales. What many people think of as armed robbery, i.e. entering a building armed with a weapon or imitation weapon in order to commit theft, is actually classed as aggravated burglary.
Aggravated burglary carries with it a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, although again, the exact details of the offence will be critical to the sentence for anyone convicted of such an offence.
