Yes. Assault and Robbery is a felony in Vermont. According to the Vermont Statutes “a person who assaults another and robs, steals, or takes from his or her person or in his or her presence money or other property that may be the subject of larceny shall be imprisoned for not more than 10 years.” The penalties become even more serious if the defendant is alleged to have possessed a deadly weapon during the course of the Assault and Robbery or if someone was injured during the alleged Assault and Robbery.
