Florida Robbery Lawyer Michael DicembreA Robbery occurs when an individual or group of people takes money or other property which may be the subject of larceny from the person or custody of another, with intent to either permanently or temporarily deprive the person or the owner of the money or other property, when in the course of the taking there is the use of force, violence, assault, or putting in fear.

Other criminal offenses may be charged in addition to a robbery charge. An act shall be deemed “in the course of committing the robbery” if additional criminal acts occur in an attempt to commit robbery or in flight after the attempt or commission, or if the additional criminal acts occur either prior to, contemporaneous with, or subsequent to the taking of the property and if other criminal offenses and the act of taking constitute a continuous series of acts or events.
