Bank Robbery Attorneys In Las Vegas, Nevada
Bank robbers and bank robberies are federal offenses that are often glorified in the television and in movies. Robberies are made to seem very easy: just go into the bank and get as much money as possible before being attacked or before the police come. Moreover, children play games like cops and robbers, and they often want to be the robbers. It is not surprising that some people choose to rob banks and think that they can get away with it.
Bank robbery is a serious federal offense, which will be harshly prosecuted. A violent crime that involves forcefully taking property or money from a federally insured bank, credit union, or savings and loan association, a bank robbery conviction may result in a prison sentence of up to 20 years and/or fines. Enhanced penalties may be enforced for gun offenses relating to the robbery.
