Texas Robbery Laws & Penalties

Robbery is a theft – with an additional element of violence. Due to the violence factor, it is punished more harshly compared to other theft crimes.

In Texas, robbery is considered intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing bodily injury to another, or intentionally or knowingly threatening or placing another individual in fear of imminent bodily injury or death. Robbery is typically a second-degree felony, punishable by a maximum prison term of 20 years and fines of up to $10,000.

However, if the commission of robbery resulted in serious bodily injury to another, the use of a weapon, or involved causing bodily injury – or threatening to place another in fear of injury or death – when that person is either disabled or 65 years of age, then it is considered aggravated robbery. Aggravated robbery is a first-degree felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 99 years and a fine of up to $10,000.
