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.
