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
