Robbery involves taking the property of another individual by force. Specific acts associated with robbery include pick pocketing, mugging, or purse snatching. Robbery is often considered a felony crime in Illinois. If an individual is convicted of this offense, he or she may face large fines, years in prison, and other penalties. Aggravating factors — such as using a weapon while committing robbery — may apply, increasing the seriousness of the crime and the penalties associated with a conviction.
Burglary involves breaking into a house, store, vehicle, or other private property with the intent of committing an offense such as theft, robbery, or assault.
