Robbery is considered a felony and with it comes long-lasting consequences. Read about what is considered a robbery, the charges associated with robberies and what you should do if you've been accused of committing a robbery in Colorado Springs.
In Colorado, if you take someone else’s property without their consent, you won’t be charged or convicted for stealing. Stealing is not a crime.
But stealing is the underlying basis for a number of separate and distinct crimes under Colorado law. Theft is a crime. Robbery is a crime. Burglary is a crime. If you’re caught stealing, you will face criminal charges for one of these offenses, each of which comes with severe penalties upon conviction.
A person commits a robbery when a person knowingly takes anything of value from another by the use of force, threats, or intimidation. A robbery can be as simple as threatening a person and telling them to give up something of value. It can be as serious and complicated as a bank robbery.
