What Is Felony Robbery in New York?

Under New York Law, Penal Codes 160.05 – 160.15, felony robbery is categorized into three groups: third degree, second degree, and first degree. The penalties for felony robbery imposed in a conviction varies based on the defendant's age, prior convictions, and the specific circumstances of your case. Specific circumstances include any allegation of the use of force, or the use or even the presence of a weapon in the commission of the crime.

Third-degree robbery is a class D non-violent felony. It is the least serious felony robbery offense, but if convicted, a person can still spend up to 7 years in state prison. Second-degree robbery is a class C violent felony and is filed in cases of "group robbery" in which more than one person was involved in committing the crime. It is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. First-degree felony robbery is the most serious offense and is a class B violent felony. These are cases in which it is alleged that there was the use of a deadly weapon or bodily injury to another person. If found guilty, the convicted person could spend up to 25 years in prison as part of the penalty.
