Bank Robbery

Charged with Bank Robbery?

The crime of bank robbery is a federal offense found under 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a). Bank robbery does not include white collar crimes, such as fraud.

Prosecution will need to prove that the person took or attempted to take money from a federally insured institution. Bank robbery also includes robbery from the following locations:

  • Credit unions
  • Savings associations
  • Loan associations

The alleged offender does not have to have a weapon present for the offense to be considered bank robbery. If a weapon is present, however, the penalties will likely be greater. Another factor that can increase a sentence is the “threat of death.”
