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.
