Currently, GS 14-87 sets out the elements of the offense of robbery or attempted robbery with firearms or other dangerous weapons, and makes the offense a Class D felony. This act adds a new subdivision to establish that evidence that the personal property of another was taken will not prevent conviction under the law.
Effective December 1, 2017, and applies to offenses committed on or after that date.
