In Texas, robbery is a felony offense that is penalized by years in prison and steep fines. The consequences of a conviction could stay with you for the rest of your life, making it hard to find a job, get credit, or even attend school.

At Smith & Vinson Law Firm, our team has intimate knowledge of the legal system and knows how to effectively handle robbery cases.

If you were accused of this offense, call us at (512) 359-3743 to get started on your case.

Texas Robbery Laws

Under Texas penal code 29.01, it is unlawful for a person to knowingly cause or attempt to cause bodily injury to another to obtain a tangible or intangible item of value. To land a conviction, the prosecutor must prove that the individual meant to commit a theft and harmed the alleged victim in the course of the act. The harm does not have to be physical; if the alleged victim claims they feared for their safety, that might be enough to bring robbery charges.

The potential punishments for this second-degree felony offense include:

  • 2 to 20 years in prison
  • $10,000 in fines

Aggravated Robbery

The offense could be elevated to aggravated robbery if the person:

  • Seriously injures another person;
  • Uses or displays a deadly weapon; or
  • Injures, threatens to injure, or puts someone in fear of injury if the alleged victim is:
    • 65 years of age or over or
    • Disabled

Aggravated robbery is a first-degree felony, and could be penalized as follows:

  • 5 to 99 years in prison
  • $10,000 in fines

    Andi

  • 5 Stars in making me feel like a top priority!

    “Jarrod Smith of Smith and Vinson Law Firm provided me with the best service I could have possibly asked for. Having no background in law and finding myself in a situation that left me feeling extremely vulnerable, I felt quickly at ease in their care. They were very reasonable with my situation and helped work around my needs in providing me the most support and information on how to best handle my case. I'd recommend this firm to anyone seeking help with a traffic violation of any kind. I feel that if it weren't for them I would have been heavily misguided and probably would not have made it through the system with the best possible outcome for me. 5 Stars for their service, generosity, and in making me feel like a top priority!”
