Degrees of Robbery Charges in Ohio

Commonly, robbery charges will be filed as a second degree felony. If it is alleged that you were carrying a weapon, or tried to threaten or inflict bodily harm upon another, you could face up to 8 years in state prison if convicted.

Charges of aggravated robbery will be filed when the following elements are believed to be present in a robbery case:

  • There was the use of explosives or other similar weapons in the commission of the crime.
  • There was an attempt to inflict serious bodily harm upon another person in the commission of the robbery.
