How to use robbery in a sentence?

  1. Abdelsalam Mahmoud:

    Everywhere in Egypt, every city or village, has different circumstances. A certain village might have a robbery problem and so the sermon should talk about thievery. Another place might have widespread murder and that is what should be discussed.

  2. Marta Romero:

    He was painted like a criminal who was involved in a robbery and had assaulted an officer, and in the video you don't see any of those things, you see the opposite, a man who is scared, who is simply trying to calm the situation, who sees that the police officer has a weapon in his hands.

  3. Steve Kraus:

    Unfortunately it's a common problem in just about every country in the world, when you confiscate condoms, studies again and again show that condoms are less likely to be used. Commercial sex is going to take place in more risky venues, where the women selling sex are more vulnerable to violence, extortion, robbery, assault, gang rape.

  4. Kris Jenner:

    Kris Jenner shared. Reality % 20TV % 20Star % 0A KIM KARDASHIAN'S SEX TAPE WAS' DEVASTATING' SAYS MOM KRIS JENNER Of course not everyone is a fan of the Kardashian/Jenners, and the momager complimented her daughters for handling criticism well. They've got really thick skin, kim leads the pack. She's the queen of the thick skin. In June Kim was mommy-shamed for a picture of her son, Saint West, in a facing forward car seat, which could put a child at risk. But she got far more scrutiny during her traumatic 2016 robbery in Paris. Kris Jenner offered insight as to why they decided to share Kardashian-West’s Paris robbery on the long running reality series. So many people felt like they deserved the explanation of what happened because they had for the last decade followed every moment of her life and so then she felt like it would almost be a relief to be able to say it on her terms and explain what happened.

  5. Legal Aid statement:

    This plea to Robbery in the First Degree is consistent with our client's limited role in this tragic event. He did not touch Ms. Majors or take any of her property. Furthermore, no DNA evidence exists linking him to the events, his acceptance of responsibility is an important first step ; it provides an opportunity for this now 14-year-old to achieve a successful future.
