When Does Robbery Become a Federal Crime? 

Robbery is defined as taking something of value from another person through the use of force, violence, or intimidation. Robbery is generally charged in state court, but at times, robbery becomes a federal offense. A federal crime is a criminal offense involving the federal government’s jurisdiction. This means that a robbery may be considered a federal crime if it involved people, property, or circumstances relevant to the interests of the United States government. 

For example, robbery can become a federal crime if a bank or another financial institution is involved. Likewise, robbing a post office, carrier facility, or a similar facility may be considered a federal crime. Robbery may also be charged federally if the offense involved crossing state lines or immigration or customs issues. 

If a dangerous weapon is involved, a person may be charged with federal armed robbery.  As with robbery, the offense of armed robbery will be charged in federal court if the crime occurred on federal property, involved a federal officer, occurred while crossing state lines, or involved an immigration of customs matter.  Federal armed robbery, like state armed robbery, carries more serious penalties.

It’s important to consult with your federal robbery lawyer in West Palm Beach to understand your charges and how to fight them. 

What Are the Penalties for Federal Robbery? 

A robbery involving the federal government’s jurisdiction is a serious accusation, and a conviction can result in severe penalties. It’s important to understand what’s at stake when you’re accused of this crime. 

Ultimately, the circumstances of an alleged robbery will determine its potential penalties. The most serious offenses that involve kidnapping and/or causing bodily harm to another individual may come with life sentences in federal prison. Less serious offenses, however, may be penalized with 5-25 years in a federal prison.
