Robbery that involves the use of a weapon is called armed robbery. Even if the robber only pretends to have a weapon, the intimidation of a victim with the threat of a weapon distinguishes armed robbery from other forms of robbery. This severe criminal offense takes place when a person takes or attempts to take something that is owned by another by the use of force, violence, and/or intimidation. Armed robbery is usually a felony that carries some of the highest penalties of all robbery cases.
Armed robbers can be charged with 30 or more years in prison plus high fines and restitution. These consequences can occur if the robber threatened the victim in any way with any weapon, regardless of if the weapon was physically present of not. If a firearm was used, the crime will be considered armed robbery with a deadly weapon and the punishments can be more severe. Bank robberies are common types of armed robberies, however the crime can be committed against any person or institution. If the person or institution felt in danger of harm or actually came to harm, it is considered a violent crime and the robber will be convicted of armed robbery.
