About Theft Charges in Santa Ana

The penalties for robbery in Santa Ana, California are typically very harsh. They will be even more serious for a defendant who already has a strike on his or her record, meaning that the defendant may face double the usual penalties for this offense. Following are the penalties that may be imposed (depending on the specific circumstances of your case):

  • First degree robbery (robbery of any type of commercial vehicle, residential robbery, or ATM robbery) - 3 to 9 years in state prison.
  • Second degree robbery (robbery that does not fit in the circumstances listed for first degree robbery) - 2 to 5 years in state prison.
