Robbery is defined as theft by violence or threat. In Tennessee, the law categorizes this crime into three levels: Robbery, aggravated robbery, and especially aggravated robbery. Aggravated robbery involves the use of a deadly weapon or the display of an item that leads the victim to assume that it is a deadly weapon. Cases where the victim suffers bodily harm are also considered aggravated robbery. An especially aggravated robbery is one where the defendant uses a deadly weapon and the victim suffers serious injuries as a result.

Penalties for Robbery

Below are the penalties for the three degrees of robbery:

  • Robbery: This is a Class C Felony, punishable by a prison term between 3 and 15 years and a fine up to $10,000. The defendant may also need to pay court costs and serve probation.
  • Aggravated robbery: This is a Class B Felony punishable by 8 to 30 years in prison, a fine up to $25,000, court costs, and probation.
  • Especially aggravated robbery: This is a Class A Felony and may lead to 15 to 60 years in prison, fines up to $50,000, a probationary period, and court expenses.

Robbery also has other consequences such as:

  • A mark on your criminal record
  • Loss of college scholarships
  • A damaged reputation
  • Difficulty being accepted to higher learning institutions
  • Difficulty securing a job

Unfortunately, current Tennessee laws bar robbery convictions from expungement. That means that once this conviction is on your criminal record, it will remain there permanently.
