Aggravated Robbery

AGGRAVATED ROBBERY.   A person commits an offense if s/he commits robbery as defined in Section 29.02, and during the commission of that crime, s/he causes serious bodily injury to another, or uses/exhibits a deadly weapon;  or causes bodily injury to another person, and/or  the victim who was threatened or placed in fear of bodily injury or death was an individual 65 years of age or older, or was disabled either physically, mentally or developmentally.

Aggravated robbery may involve the use of a deadly weapon, such as a gun or knife. This offense has been traditionally known as "armed robbery," but that term is no longer used in Texas law and is prosecuted as Aggravated Robbery.


Range of Punishment: If the crime is elevated to that of Aggravated Robbery, this offense will be a 1st Degree Felony. This carries a more serious penalty of 5 to 99 years in a state prison and/or a fine not to exceed $10,000.
