Robbery And Aggravated Robbery
By itself, robbery is considered a class C felony crime, which carries between three and 15 years of prison time and fines up to $10,000. However, the offense may be elevated to aggravated robbery when the perpetrator uses a deadly weapon (or what appears to be a deadly weapon) or causes serious bodily harm to the victim.
The crime can be escalated even further to especially aggravated robbery when the perpetrator both uses a deadly weapon and causes serious bodily harm to the victim. This offense is considered a class A felony and carries the very harshest penalties under the law.
