Have You Been Accused of Robbery in New York?
Under New York law, robbery charges are brought against an individual when property is forcibly taken from another without their permission. In other words, it is larceny with the addition of force; the prosecution must prove that both occurred in order to convict someone of robbery. “Force” could take the form of a struggle over a piece of property, or it could take the form of brandishing a weapon, punching, slapping, striking with an object, and other forms of physical force.
