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.
