Can I Be Charged With Robbery If I Took My Boyfriend’s Cell Phone To Call A Cab During A Fight?

Yes, if you used force or the threat of force to take something from another person, you run the risk of a robbery charge.

And because the incident happened with an intimate partner, it’s likely to be prosecuted as a domestic violence offense, meaning that even at a misdemeanor level, you run the risk of life altering penalties.

New York takes domestic violence offenses extremely seriously, so you may already have been served with an order of protection that can keep you out of your home and put you in jeopardy of arrest if you try to see your boyfriend again.

You should take these charges very seriously and take every step available to protect your rights and your future.
