Texas Robbery Laws
In the state of Texas, robbery can be categorized by two types: robbery and aggravated robbery. Both of these offenses are defined in TEX PE. CODE ANN. § 29 and are classified as serious felonies.
Texas robbery law is defined as follows:
- Robbery. Robbery occurs when a suspect commits theft while intentionally or recklessly causes bodily injury to another person or intentionally or knowingly puts another person in fear of imminent bodily injury or death.
- Aggravated robbery. Aggravated robbery occurs when a suspect commits theft and causes serious bodily injury to another person, uses or exhibits a deadly weapon, or hurts or threatens a victim who is disabled or elderly.
Robbery is considered a second-degree felony and aggravated robbery is considered a first-degree felony. If you'd like more information on your particular case, your potential penalties, or how Attorney Jeter can help you pursue the best possible outcome, contact J. Roland Jeter, P.C. today.
