In Alabama the presence of the victim and if a weapon is present enhance and will change the level of charges you face.


In CA robbery is “The taking of the property of another either from their person or immediate presence through the use of force or fear.” Burglary is entering a structure, locked vehicle or aircraft with the intent to commit petty theft, grand theft or any other felony." Catch the distinction? A home invasion robbery would be both a robbery and a burglary.
