The sentence for armed bank robbery is 20 years although it can be as high as 30 years to life depending on the persons criminal history.

Armed bank robbery and bank robbery itself is a federal offense.

A simple robbery is a robbery that involves taking of anything of value from a person by use of intimidation or force but without a dangerous weapon.

The highest sentence for armed robbery is 30 years to life in prison.

Robbery is a felony and can get the robber sentenced to 9 years to 20 years or even more in state prison.

Pen robbery is considered worse than armed robbery as it most often involves multiple victims.

Pen robbery can have a more widespread impact so it's usually worse than armed robbery.

Armed robbery typically involves a single victim, while pen robbery can involve multiple victims, as the stolen money or assets can be used to harm others and fund terrorism.

The most feared type of robbery is armed robbery that is committed with the use of a deadly weapon, like with a knife, gun or other object that causes harm which can also be a golf club, baseball bat or brick etc.

The most common type of robbery is Larceny-theft.

Larceny theft is a Class A misdemeanor to a class B felony depending on the state.

A blitz robbery is a robbery in which the robber uses immediate violence to gain control during the robbery.

The most feared robbery is armed robbery which is a very serious crime and can permanently traumatize its victims, both physically and psychologically.

Armed robbery tends to receive considerable media attention when it occurs, and it carries longer prison terms than other forms of robbery such as simple robbery (i.e., theft without a dangerous weapon).

Aggravated robbery is a robbery that occurs under the most serious of circumstances and usually requires either that a deadly weapon was used during the robbery or that the perpetrator inflicted serious bodily harm on the victim.

Approximately six out of ten robberies are by armed suspects.

Ambush, selective raid, and planned operation.

Robbery is the crime of taking or attempting to take anything of value by force, threat of force, or by use of fear.

Robbery is the crime of stealing money or property from a bank, shop, or vehicle, often by using force or threats.

The gang members committed dozens of armed robberies.

The man was serving a sentence for robbery with violence.

Both theft and robbery involve taking or attempting to take money or property without permission.

But theft doesn't involve violence, whereas the crime of robbery requires force or the threat of force.

The FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program defines robbery as the taking or attempting to take anything of value from the care, custody, or control of a person or persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting the victim in fear.

Robbing a bank is even more serious and is a Federal Offense.

Under federal law, bank robbery is a serious offense and you could be sentenced for up to 20 years in a federal prison, a fine up to $250,000.00, or both.
