In the State of Florida, there are various forms of Criminal Robbery:
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.
