Robbery Elements in Jacksonville

When you are arrested for robbery in Jacksonville, certain elements must be met. The prosecutor must show that you:

1. took money or property from someone else,
2. took it with the intent to permanently or temporarily deprive the owner of it, and
3. in the course of the taking, you used force, violence, assault, or put the victim in fear.

The fear has to be of great bodily harm or death. Even if the victim testifies that he wasn’t in fear himself, if a “reasonable person” would have felt fearful in the same situation, the jury can come back with a guilty verdict.
