Robbery Offences

In New South Wales (NSW), robbery is a serious criminal offense involving the use of force, intimidation, or the threat of violence to unlawfully take property from another person. Robbery is categorized as a violent crime, distinguishing it from theft, as it involves direct confrontation or the use of force against a victim.

The maximum penalty for robbery in NSW is determined by the circumstances surrounding the offense. Section 94 of the Crimes Act 1900 outlines the offense of robbery and provides for a maximum penalty of up to 14 years of imprisonment for a standard case. However, if the robbery involves aggravating factors, such as the use of a weapon or infliction of actual bodily harm, the penalties can be more severe.

For instances of armed robbery, where a weapon, whether real or imitation, is used or threatened to be used, the maximum penalty increases to life imprisonment. The court considers factors such as the degree of violence employed, the level of planning, and any harm caused to the victim when determining the appropriate sentence.

It is essential to note that legal information may be subject to changes, and individuals should consult the latest legal sources or seek professional advice for the most up-to-date information on robbery offenses and penalties in NSW.
