Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between robbery and burglary?
This is a question that we are often asked by clients who have been charged with one of these serious crimes. In short, robbery is a theft crime that involves the use of force or the threat of force against another person. Burglary, on the other hand, is a property crime that involves illegally entering a building with the intent to commit a crime.
