What is the difference between robbery and burglary?

A robbery is a theft crime that is defined by using force, intimidation, and violence or the threat of violence to take possession of someone else's property to deprive them of it. Due to the violent nature of such a crime, prosecutors are well known in their aggressive attempts to obtain a conviction in robbery and armed robbery cases. The consequences of a conviction often result in:

  • Fines and restitution
  • Long-term prison sentence
  • Permanent criminal record
  • Probation

A burglary is a crime that is defined as breaking and entering a building without permission with the intention of committing a crime while inside. The "breaking" still occurs even if a door is open or a window is unlocked due to the unauthorized entry. Even though burglary is normally considered to accompany a theft, entrance without consent with the intent to commit any kind of crime is burglary. Different factors to determine the severity of punishment will be taken into consideration such as previous criminal record, the type of building entered, and crime committed during the unlawful entry, but the consequences of a conviction can result in:

  • Fines and Restitution
  • Prison sentence
  • Permanent criminal record
  • Probation
