Robbery Laws & Penalties in Ohio

Robbery is divided into two groups in Ohio—robbery and aggravated robbery. Crimes are then broken up into distinct degrees within those two categories.

Robbery consists of the following features:

  • Having a deadly weapon under your control
  • Inflicting harm or threatening another with harm
  • Using force or the threat of force against the alleged victim

If a person has a weapon or injures another while committing an act of robbery, they will face second-degree felony charges, which carry two to eight years in jail. Robbery using only the threat of force is a third-degree felony punishable by one to five years in jail.

Aggravated Robbery is more serious. You can be accused of this robbery crime if you:

  • Have and display a deadly weapon
  • Possess an explosive or other "dangerous ordinance"
  • Inflict or attempt to inflict serious physical harm on the alleged victim

Aggravated robbery is a felony in the first degree carrying 3 to 10 years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines.
