What is a Robbery in the state of Ohio?
The Ohio Revised Code defines Robbery in R.C. 2911.02:
“(A) No person, in attempting or committing a theft offense or in fleeing immediately after the attempt or offense, shall do any of the following:
(1) Have a deadly weapon on or about the offender's person or under the offender's control;
(2) Inflict, attempt to inflict, or threaten to inflict physical harm on another;
(3) Use or threaten the immediate use of force against another.”
Robberies in movies and popular culture often involve someone in a mask with a gun at a bank. While Robbery can be charged if a deadly weapon is present, it can also be charged if someone attempts to inflict or threatens to inflict physical harm against another person while committing a theft offense.
