Robbery Attorney in Raleigh

What qualifies as robbery in North Carolina?

Under Article 17 of N.C. General Statutes, one could be charged with robbery if they have committed:

  • Robbery with firearms or other dangerous weapons
  • Common-law robbery
  • Train robbery
  • Safecracking.

Each carries different penalties under the law, depending on the nature and severity of the crime. For example, robbery with firearms or other dangerous weapons and train robbery are considered to be Class D Felony offenses, while common-law robbery and safecracking are treated as a Class G Felony and Class I Felony, respectively.

Since North Carolina assigns a certain level of points to each prior felony offense that an offender has on their record, one could be faced an enhanced prison sentence if they have a less than perfect criminal history. As such, it is highly recommended that you discuss your case with a Raleigh criminal attorney from our firm if you have been accused of committing a robbery—regardless of whether or not you have been convicted of a prior offense.
