Burglary is when one enters a dwelling (home), structure (business), or conveyance (car) with the intent to commit a crime inside. It is not necessary for the person to actually enter, sometimes just touching the outside of the location or reaching inside is enough to be arrested and charged.
Punishment tends to be more severe when a theft is committed during a burglary or a robbery. If a gun or weapon is taken in the course of a burglary, the charge can be elevated to an armed burglary, consequently increasing exposure in prison.
Robbery, as defined in 812.13 Florida Statutes, means the taking of money or other property which may be the subject of larceny from the person or custody of another, with the intent to either permanently or temporarily deprive the person or the owner of the money or other property, when in the course of the taking there is the use of force, violence, assault, or putting in fear.
If a firearm or other “deadly weapon” is carried by the alleged offender, then the robbery is a felony of the first degree, punishable by imprisonment for a term of years not exceeding life in prison. There are many factors that go into how a robbery is charged and what sentences apply.
