Robbery as Defined by Kansas State Laws
K.S.A. § 21-5420 defines robbery as "knowingly taking property from the person or
presence of another by force or threat of bodily harm to any person."
Robbery is a severity level 3, person felony and is punishable by a
fine of up to $300,000 and a
jail sentence of up to 55 months. The offense is considered to be aggravated, however,
when a dangerous weapon is brandished or used during the robbery. As such,
it is punishable by up to 100 months in jail and the same fine.
