Armed robbery charges are most assuredly not only a felony, but also a violent felony offense. The penalties can be extremely severe, especially if you’re charged with robbery in the first degree, which carries a minimum penalty of five years of upstate incarceration.

An individual may also be charged with first-degree armed robbery if they have used a deadly weapon, while committing the crime. In New York, the term deadly weapon can refer to:

  • A loaded firearm
  • A billy club
  • Brass or metal knuckles
  • Daggers
  • A blackjack
  • Certain knives, including pilum ballistic knives, gravity knives, or switchblades
