In the state of Louisiana the severe and very common crime of armed robbery is classified as a violent crime. Due to this classification culprits who are convicted are treated in the most harsh ways by the local law which pursues and investigates such violent crimes. Armed Robbery by definition is the stealing of anything valuable from another person without their official consent. If in the act of robbing someone a dangerous weapon is used the severity of the crime becomes greater, so as the punishment for it. The minimum sentence for an armed robbery is no less than 10 years and no more than 99 years in prison in the state of Louisiana.
Essentially, all of this means that if you plan by any chance of robbing someone you should at least make sure it’s worth it. Recently, in Louisiana, one armed with a handgun individual, decided to rob a local branch of the international chain of convenience stores Circle-K. He entered the premises and placed a $20 bill in front of the clerk and wanted change. When the unsuspecting clerk opened the cash register, the robber pulled out the gun and demanded all the cash inside. When the clerk obliged his wishes the robber ran away with the loot while leaving the $20 bill behind. It turns out the thief risked the severe penalty if getting caught for the mere $15 amount he stole from the cash drawer.
