WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ROBBERY AND AGGRAVATED ROBBERY?
In the state of Utah, a person is guilty of robbery if:
- They unlawfully and intentionally takes or attempts to take personal property; or
- The person intentionally or knowingly uses force or fear of immediate force against another in the course of committing a theft or wrongful appropriation.
An act is considered to be in the course of committing a theft or wrongful appropriation if it occurs:
- In the course of an attempt to commit theft or wrongful appropriation;
- In the commission of theft or wrongful appropriation; or
- In the immediate flight after the attempt or commission.
There is an aspect that makes robbery a first degree felony charge. It is called aggravated robbery. Aggravated robbery is when a person, in the course of committing robbery:
- Uses or threatens to use a dangerous weapon;
- Causes serious bodily injury upon another; or
- Takes or attempts to take an operable motor vehicle.
Robbery is a more serious crime then theft, as it has aspects of force or fear.
