Los Angeles Bank Robbery Attorney
Arrested for Robbing a Bank?
Because of the nature of the circumstances involved with robbing a bank, the penalties associated with this crime can be overwhelmingly severe. For one, banks are insured by the federal government; therefore robbing a bank is considered a serious offense against the federal government. Secondly, bank robbing is considered a crime of violence. Even though a bank robber may not have a weapon or firearm or use physical force or threaten violence in any way throughout the course of the robbery, that bank robber has employed what can be considered wrongful intimidation.
In bank robbery cases, even a note slipped to the teller is considered intimidation as it entails negative consequences for that teller if he or she does not follow the instructions on the note. Bank robbery is a federal offense and therefore carries penalties much more severe than many other criminal convictions. These penalties usually entail prison time up to a sentence of life in prison. Due to the heavy penalties in cases of bank robbery and the strict and unforgiving attitude directed towards suspected offenders, it is absolutely necessary to seek the counsel of a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney immediately if you are accused of robbing a bank or in conspiring or participating in this crime.
