Penalties for Robbery in Tennessee

Unlike burglary which involves entering a building and committing a felony or theft once inside, robbery involves forcefully taking stolen property directly from a person’s possession and can occur anywhere at any time. Depending on whether the act of robbery involved the use of a deadly weapon or resulted in serious injury to the victim, robbery can be classified as either a Class C, Class B, or Class A felony offense.

Robbery penalties in Tennessee are as follows:

  • Robbery: 3-15 years imprisonment, fines up to $10,000
  • Aggravated robbery: 8-30 years imprisonment, fines up to $25,000
  • Especially aggravated robbery: 15-60 years imprisonment, fines up to $50,000

In addition to the immediate criminal penalties, a person convicted of robbery can face a number of secondary consequences such as a damaged reputation and difficulty finding suitable employment, sometimes long after they have served their sentence. Likewise, robbery convictions cannot be expunged or erased from public record. For this reason, if you are facing robbery charges, it is imperative you act quickly to protect your future and freedom. Attorney Crain can examine the details of your case and craft a custom-tailored strategy that contests the evidence against you and maximize your chances of securing a favorable outcome for your situation.
