Facing a robbery charge can be distressing, and conviction for this serious offense in New Jersey could lead to a long-term prison sentence. The New Jersey Statue, N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1, defines robbery as an act where someone attempts or commits theft while inflicting bodily harm or using force on another person or threatening them with danger. Depending on the circumstances surrounding a case, robbery is classified either as a first-degree or second-degree crime.
A conviction for robbery can carry harsh penalties, especially those found guilty of first-degree robbery. If you’re convicted of second-degree robbery, you could be facing five to ten years in jail and possibly paying fines up to $150,000.

– An individual who undertakes theft while also inflicting bodily injury or using some amount of force on another
– Or threatens to use such force against the person
– Or attempts/commits theft with conscious intent
If the assailant had used weapons while committing theft, they would face first-degree charges.
