Types of Robbery

There are three types of robbery in Arizona: robbery, aggravated robbery, and armed robbery. While the elements of each robbery crime are similar, the punishments differ.

As we mentioned before, robbery consists of taking any property from another person against their will while using force or threatening force. A first offense is considered a Class 4 felony, punishable by up to 3.75 years in prison and a fine of up to $150,000.

Robbery becomes an aggravated robbery when the crime involves serious bodily injury or there are one or more accomplices who helped the defendant commit the crime. A first offense is a Class 3 felony, which carries a maximum 8.75-year prison sentence and a fine not exceeding $150,000.

Lastly, armed robbery involves force associated with the use of a deadly weapon. A first offense is a Class 2 “dangerous” felony, which results in a prison sentence of up to 21 years—with a minimum mandatory term of seven years—and a fine of up to $150,000.
