Robbery in Las Vegas

Defining Robbery in Nevada

According to NRS 200.380, robbery is the unlawful taking of another person's property off their person or in their presence without their permission by threat or use of force or injury against the victim, their family, or another person present at the time of the robbery. This theft crime is not to be confused with retail theft in a store, or with burglary that involves unlawful entry or theft when no one is present.

Penalties for Robbery

Robbery is a class B felony under Nevada state law. As such, it is punishable by a prison sentence of 2-15 years. If you are convicted of robbery, you will spend a great deal of time in prison and suffer the effects that imprisonment has on you reputation and relationships. You will have a black mark on your record that is not easily dismissed by potential employers, or even by friends and family. Any dreams you had of achieving success in a career will be much more difficult to attain.
