Definition of Armed Robbery
The Official Code of Georgia Annotated §16-8-41 defines "armed robbery" as stealing property from someone else, or from someone else's immediate presence, using an "offensive weapon" or any replica or device that looks like a weapon. This means that you could face charges if someone sees what they think is a deadly weapon when someone is trying to steal something by force or intimidation.
Penalties for Armed Robbery in Georgia
Under O.C.G.A. §16-8-41(b), armed robbery is punishable by a prison sentence of 10-30 years or life, with no chance of pardon, parole, or reduction of the minimum sentence. The death sentence is also possible in aggravated cases, whether the property had an extremely high value, people were injured or killed during the robbery, or the case involved aggravated robbery of a bank or other financial institution (a federal crime).
