Kissimmee Theft & Robbery Attorneys

We defend clients from theft and robbery charges

Theft is the act of appropriating the property of another without permission. Robbery is the criminal taking of money or property from an individual or from the custody of another with intent to temporarily or permanently deprive the person using force, violence, assault or the fear of physical harm. If you have been charged with theft or robbery, an experienced Kissimmee theft or robbery attorney can help. Salazar & Kelly Law Group, P.A. provides criminal defense services to Orlando and beyond. We are former prosecutors who are experienced at handling theft and robbery cases.

Robbery and aggravated robbery are aggressively prosecuted

Robbery and aggravated robbery are violent crimes subject to the federal Three Strikes Law, and Florida’s 10-20-Life firearm law (775.08). There are several scenarios that determine how severe a sentence may be:

  • Robbery without a weapon — If a weapon is not used in the commission of the crime, it is a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable by up to a $10,000 fine and 15 years in prison and/or probation.
  • Robbery using a non-deadly weapon If the offender carried a non-deadly weapon in the course of committing the robbery, it is a felony of the first degree, punishable by up to a $15,000 fine and 30 years in prison and/or probation.
  • Robbery using a deadly weapon If the offender carried a firearm or other deadly weapon, it is a felony of the first degree, punishable by imprisonment for a term not exceeding life imprisonment.

Any violent crime carries a significant penalty and can have long-lasting effects, especially if you have a prior conviction. Our criminal defense attorneys can explain more about the potential penalties.

Theft can result in jail time

Theft occurs when an individual knowingly and intentionally obtains or uses the property of another with the intent of temporarily or permanently depriving the rightful owner. Theft also includes illegally taking property for the benefit of someone else. Theft is usually categorized as follows:

  • Petit theft — Commonly called petty theft, this involves property or assets of less than $300. Petit theft is a misdemeanor criminal offense punishable by up to one year in jail.
  • Grand theft — Grand theft involves property or assets of $300 or greater. Grand theft is a felony criminal offense punishable by up to five years in prison.

There are also provisions under Florida law that may trigger an escalation of grand theft charges from a felony in the third degree to a felony in the second or first degree. Grand theft includes the illegal and unauthorized taking of money, motor vehicles, firearms, wills or testamentary documents, commercially farmed animals, fire extinguishers, and any other item with a provable value of more than $300.
