Armed Robbery Sentencing in Alabama

Armed robbery is defined as robbing a person or place of business with a deadly weapon such as a knife or gun. The robber uses the weapon to intimidate his or her victim by threatening them with it.

The situation becomes aggravated robbery when the robber uses force and violence to complete the robbery, which can include using the weapon being brandished.

In Alabama, aggravated robbery is considered a first-degree felony and is punishable with prison time from 5 to 99 years or life in prison. A fine may also accompany the prison time but is not to exceed $10,000.
