What Is The Difference Between Theft, Robbery And Burglary?
The terminology involved in many theft cases can confuse people. The categorization of a crime largely comes down to a few questions: who was present, where did the crime occur and was the crime violent? Theft is a broad term that refers to taking another person’s property. Robbery typically involves taking property directly from an individual or business by force. Burglary is theft involving entering a property illicitly for the purpose of that theft.
What Are The Consequences Of A Conviction?
Theft, burglary and robbery charges carry serious consequences in Arkansas. If you’re convicted of one of these crimes, you could face:
- Up to $15,000 in fines
- Up to 20 years in prison
- The loss of your firearm privileges and voting rights
