If you use physical force, threats or intimidation to gain property or money, you may be charged with robbery. Unlike theft, robbery involves the use or threat of force. A robbery conviction may yield several years in prison as well as a steep fine.

If no force is used, you may be facing a charge of theft. Theft charges can be brought about even if the person was not present at the time of the theft. A theft conviction may yield up to a year in jail and a fine if convicted of a misdemeanor or up to twenty years in jail if convicted of a felon.
