Indicted For Robbery At the Burlington County Superior Court

Since robbery is always an indictable crime, the only place were someone can face an indictment is at the Superior Court in Mt. Holly. While you may have been arrested for this theft offense in Willingboro, Palmyra, Mount Laurel, or another town in the county, your charge will definitely end up in Mount Holly New Jersey. A jury sitting there will have to find that you attempted or committed a theft by inflicting bodily injury, using force, or threatening either. If you were armed or attempted to kill or inflict serious bodily injury on the victim, robbery is a first degree crime (i.e. armed robbery). In all other instances robbery is a second degree crime. You should also know that a robbery involving a car or other motor vehicle is termed carjacking and is always a first degree crime.

What Does The Burlington County Prosecutor Have To Prove In Order To Convict You Of Robbery In Mount Holly New Jersey?

There are essentially four elements that must be established by the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office in order to convict you for robbery. They must first prove that you committed or attempted to commit a theft. Second, you must have inflicted bodily injury or used force against another person, or threatened to engage in such conduct. Third, your actions must have transpired while attempting, committing or flight from the theft. The fourth element that has to be proven is that you acted purposely, in other words, you have the conscious object to commit the theft by utilizing threats or force.

What Are The Penalties For Robbery If You Are Convicted By A Jury In Mt. Holly?

The penalties for both first and second degree robbery are extreme if you are found guilty of this offense. The No Early Release Act applies in both instances and this law requires that a defendant serve at least 85% of any jail sentence imposed before they are eligible for parole. In the case of second degree robbery (a.k.a. strong arm), the range of incarceration is 5-10 years. The prison term for first degree robbery is 10-20 years. There is also the potential for a fine of up to $150,000 for a second degree and $200,000 for a first degree charge.
