  1. Sounds like what you’re describing would constitute a Robbery in the Second Degree, a Class “C” felony and more specifically a class “C” violent felony. The exact sentencing range would depend on the criminal background of the individual. If he or she has no prior felony convictions the sentencing range is 3 ½ to 15 years incarceration, followed by a period of post release supervision of between 2 ½ to 5 years. With a prior non-violent felony conviction the sentencing range is 5 to 15 years followed by five years post-release supervision. If a defendant is convicted of a class “C” violent felony and has a prior violent felony conviction the sentencing rang is 7 to 15 years followed by five years post release supervision.
