Criminal Defense Attorney Handling Robbery Charges
How Is Robbery Different From Burglary?
The words burglary and robbery are often used interchangeably. Under the
law in the State of Washington, however, they are two distinct offenses
with distinct penalties. The primary difference between burglary and robbery
is that burglary is generally committed without the knowledge or presence
of the victim when the crime takes place. With robbery, the victim is
present and some use of force or threatened force is used to commit the
crime. Robbery without the use of firearms or other weapons is called
Robbery in the Second Degree. This is a felony and is punishable with
up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $20,000 or both.
