Dallas Robbery Defense Lawyer

Definition Robbery Charges in Texas

Under Texas Penal Code §29.02, "Robbery," occurs when the perpetrator "intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly" injures another person while committing theft. It also occurs when the perpetrator places the victim in fear of imminent bodily injury or death.

If you have been arrested after taking someone else's property by force or threatening to use force, you could be charged with the felony criminal offense of robbery. Take action immediately and contact an attorney the moment you are arrested, as you could be facing serious penalties.

  • If the perpetrator causes serious bodily injury to the victim
