Essentially, robbery is taking something from someone else using force or fear. California Penal Code section 211 defines it this way: “Robbery is the felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another, from his person or immediate presence, and against his will, accomplished by means of force or fear.”
Most robbery is second degree robbery and is punishable in the state prison for two, three, or five years. (Penal Code section 213.) It is also among the “violent” felonies enumerated in section 667.5, subdivision (c) and therefore a “strike” within the meaning of the “Three Strikes and You're Out” law.
