Robbery Definition & Penalties
Robbery in the Nevada state court system essentially involves the unlawful
taking of another individual’s property by use of force,
violence, and/or threat. The Nevada statute that defines Robbery also prescribes
a penalty of two to fifteen years in prison in the Nevada Department of
Corrections with an additional one to twenty years in prison, consecutive
to the Robbery sentence, if a
deadly weapon is involved in the commission of the crime.
Federal forms of Robbery in Las Vegas frequently include Bank Robbery,
and Robbery pursuant to the Hobbs Act, which essentially covers robberies
and attempted robberies that affect interstate commerce. In a case in
federal court involving a charge of Hobbs Act Robbery, the government
would essentially have to prove that the person charged induced a victim
to part with his property by wrongfully using either actual or threatened
force. They would also have to prove that the person charged acted with
the intent to obtain the property and that those actions affected commerce
from one state to another in some way.
Either form of robbery, state and federal, can subject a person to a significant
prison sentence. Depending upon the variables inevitably present in almost
every case, sentences for robbery cases in Las Vegas can vary from a few
years to a decade or more. The severity of these crimes make it essential
that a person charged with the crime of robbery in Las Vegas receives
the best legal help possible.
