What you need to know about the Theft Act 1968
Robbery is considered a criminal act and it is an offence that involves the use of threat when trying to steal from someone. The use of force in robbery associated with the theft will lead to the accusation of robbery. Carjacking, street robberies, vehicle theft, shop robberies or bank robberies are few of the categories of robberies which can be met in UK and for which offenders can face imprisonment. The description of robbery involves the use of a weapon (gun, knife, etc.) with threats and the intention of stealing from some place or someone. Detention starts with at least two years of imprisonment, and the Crown Court is the institution in charge of trials involving robbery. Severe cases of persons accused of robbery and murder can be subject to life imprisonment.

How is the sentence for robbery issued?
The court of law will have to analyze the criminal record of a person accused of robbery, if he or she is considered a dangerous person and if particular factors are involved in a robbery, such as:
- the number of people and the vulnerability of the persons involved in a robbery;
- if the stolen items are of high value (the reason for the robbery);
- if the offender was disguised and if he/she robbed someone at night;
- if the offender was leading a group of people when the robbery took place.
The sentence will be imposed considering the above-mentioned factors, however, the authorities will also reflect on other aspects too when deciding on the sentence. For instance, if the stolen items were returned, if the robbery was unplanned, or if the offender had a minor role in the offence.
