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.
