No. Good luck.


Robbery is a separate crime with different elements. Receiving stolen property is not robbery.


Receiving stolen property although is a separate crime than robbery, it is sometimes used as a lesser included or lesser related offense to robbery in plea bargaining purposes. You should pull your file in the juvenile court to see what is on your record for certain. Sometimes memories mistake what really happened in court.
