In the State of Florida, there are various forms of Criminal Robbery:
- Robbery: According to Florida Statute Chapter 812.13, the Criminal Act of Robbery is defined as the criminal act of taking money, property, or assets from an individual or the custody of another with intent to either temporarily or permanently deprive the individual or owner of the money or property by use of force, violence, assault, or instilling fear of physical harm of the victim or those associated with the victim.
- Second Degree Felony Robbery: Robbery without the use of a deadly weapon or firearm during the commission of the criminal act.
- First Degree Felony Robbery: Robbery with the use of a deadly weapon or firearm during the commission of the criminal act.
In order for the prosecution to obtain a conviction for robbery, proof of the accused taking the money, property, or assets must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Other elements of the crime the prosecution may have to prove includes: Substantiating the accused is the person that took or participated in the taking the money, property, or assets without authorization from the alleged victim; Substantiating the accused used force, violence, assault, or intentionally instilled fear of physical harm to the victim while in the commission of the alleged act of robbery; That the alleged taking of the money, property, or assets was indeed that which was not lawfully the accused money, property, or assets to begin with.
