Both robbery and burglary are specific intent crimes which involve property. Both may seem similar, but they are in fact different crimes that involve different circumstances.
The difference between robbery and burglary are as follow:
- In robbery there is an element of violence such as using a weapon to coerce a victim to give up their property,
- In burglary there is an attempt to break in to a building with the intent to commit a crime such as theft.
These are serious crimes designated as felonies in which the convicted can be sent to prison for many years. If you have been charged with one of these crimes, it will traumatize your life.

Evidence in Robbery/Burglary Cases
Many times robbery and burglary cases are prosecuted with little to no direct evidence linking the accused perpetrator to the crime. Those accused of such crimes need the help of criminal defense attorneys like those at The Kyle Law Firm who understand how to handle criminal court proceedings.
Both robbery and burglary are considered class A misdemeanors to felonies with aggravating circumstances such as if there is a weapon involved or violence used. Often in these cases, witnesses and other evidence, such as DNA or physical evidence left behind at the scene, are imperative in obtaining convictions of those who are accused.
Obtaining the identity of perpetrators in these crimes is frequently difficult due to their efforts to conceal identity such as with masks or gloves. Therefore, circumstantial evidence may be the only evidence a prosecutor has in such a case. As your criminal defense lawyer, we know the ins and outs of these cases and how we can help you get your charges lifted.
