Texas Robbery Penalties
Robbery consists of intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing bodily
injury to another, or intentionally or knowingly threatening or placing
another individual in hear of imminent bodily injury or death. This violent
crime is classified as a second-degree felony and carries a potential
two to 20-year prison sentence and fines of up to $10,000.
On the other hand, robbery can be elevated to “aggravated robbery”
if you are accused of committing robbery while (1) causing serious bodily
injury to another person, (2) use or exhibit a deadly weapon, or (3) cause
bodily injury to another or threaten or place another in fear of injury
or death when that individual is either 65 years of age or disabled. Aggravated
robbery is a first-degree felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence
of 99 years and a fine of up to $10,000.
