To prove that the defendant is guilty of Robbery, the People must prove that:

☐  The defendant took property that was not (his/her) own;

☐  The property was taken from another person’s possession
and immediate presence;

☐  The property was taken against that person’s will;

☐  The defendant used force or fear to take the property or
to prevent the person from resisting;


☐  When the defendant used force or fear to take the
property, (he/she) intended (to deprive the owner of it
permanently/ [or] to remove it from the owner’s
possession for so extended a period of time that the owner
would be deprived of a major portion of the value or
enjoyment of the property).

The defendant’s intent to take the property must have been
formed before or during the time (he/she) used force or fear. If
the defendant did not form this required intent until after using
the force or fear, then (he/she) did not commit robbery.
