What Must the Government Show?
In order to convict a person of Robbery, the government must show
- The defendant took property that was not their own
- The property was taken from another person’s possession and immediate presence
- The property was taken against that person’s will
- The defendant used force or fear to take the property or to prevent the person from resisting
- When the defendant used force or fear to take the property he or she intended to deprive the owner of it permanently.
A person need not actually hold or touch something to possess it.
Under California Law, Fear means fear of injury to one’s person or property or immediate injury to someone else present during the incident or that person’s property.
To constitute a taking, the property need only be moved a small distance.
