aking property that does not belong to you is considered a serious act. This is especially true when the property in question is worth a significant amount of money. However, no matter the worth of the property, when extreme force or a weapon is used during a robbery, this could have tragic results. If a person is killed in the course of a robbery, this could result in a robbery homicide charge, and such a charge could have harsh penalties if a conviction results.
This crime essentially encapsulates two crimes. First, a robbery must be committed. And in the commission of a robbery, a homicide is committee. The elements of robbery consists of the taking, with the intent to steal, the personal property of another person from his or her person, in their presence, against his or her will, by violence, intimidation or threat of force.
