Difference Between Armed Robbery and Strong Arm Robbery in FL

In the state of Florida, there are two primary categories of robbery – armed robbery and strong arm robbery. These two forms of robbery have distinct differences that it is important to understand when considering a charge and criminal defense.

  • Armed robbery involves the suspect having an offensive weapon or dangerous instrument, such as a gun or knife
  • Strong arm robbery is the use of brute strength and violence to take another's property even in the absence of a weapon.

Both are serious offenses in Florida, depending on the amount of money taken and whether any injury tragically occurred; with maximum sentences ranging from 5 years to life imprisonment due to their felony classifications.

What are the Penalties for Armed Robbery in FL?

Armed robbery is a form of aggravated robbery that involves the use or possession of a weapon, firearm or other deadly weapon in the commission of the crime. Armed robbery is a felony offense in Florida, and a conviction may result in up to life imprisonment as well as a fine of up to $10,000 - depending on the particular circumstances of the offense.

Following are the specific criminal charges and penalties that a defendant may face for armed robbery in Florida:
