Robbery Charges in New Jersey

Robbery in the first degree is a felony offense in New Jersey, punishable by 10-20 years in prison. Robbery in the second degree is a felony offense in New Jersey, punishable by 5-10 years in prison.

Most robbery charges are second degree charges. A robbery offense may become a first degree offense if the robbery involves an attempted murder, the use of a deadly weapon such as a gun or knife, or the intentional or attempted infliction of severe bodily injury. (NJSA 2C:15-1)

Burglary Charges in New Jersey

Burglary may be a second degree crime or a third degree crime in New Jersey, depending on the circumstances. A second degree crime is punishable by 5-10 years in prison, whereas a third degree crime is punishable by 3-5 years in prison.

A person is guilty of burglary if they enter a structure without valid legal authority and for the purpose of committing a criminal offense. A burglary becomes a second degree felony if the offender is armed with a deadly weapon or causes bodily injury to another person purposefully, knowingly, or recklessly. (N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2)

Since a conviction for robbery or burglary can result in significant criminal penalties, it is critical that you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer if you have been arrested on such charges. Let us put our experience to work for you.
