Robbery is the theft of property directly from a person. Burglary is theft of property from a house, building, or even a vehicle. Both of these crimes are made more serious if a weapon of any type is involved, even if he weapon is not used. In most cases a conviction for these crimes where a weapon is involved require several years in the penitentiary. If you are arrested or suspected for any of these offenses, don’t talk and seek out an attorney immediately.
