Under Illinois law, robbery is defined as taking property from another with the use or threat of force. Actual violence does not have to occur in order for a defendant to be charged with robbery. Instead, the prosecution must prove that you intended to use force.
Robbery is charged as a Class 2 felony offense, punishable by a prison sentence of three to seven years, in addition to fines, possible restitution, and court costs. Potential penalties increase when the charges are “aggravated,” such as when a victim is harmed or killed in the course of the robbery or a gun or other weapon is used to commit the crime.
Gregory Walker is confident in and out of the courtroom and has the legal experience to back it up.
