    Default Is a Person Who Steals Money from People Over the Internet Considered Dangerous

    My question involves criminal law for all of the U.S.A.:

    Is a person who steals money from people through the internet considered as dangerous as a person who steals money from someone at gunpoint? Would it make a difference if it was a lot of money?

    Laws vary by state. The penalties tend to increase depending on the severity of the theft, but this, too, varies by state.

    Armed robbery is generally considered a violent criminal offense whereas larceny is not. The penalties for a typical armed robbery will typically be greater than those applied to theft.
