Southern California bank manager implicated in bank robbery

Whether an individual is accused of a regulatory offense or some other federal offense, those who are accused of federal crimes can count on a tough, uphill battle. Fortunately, in the United States a criminal charge is not a conviction. Nevertheless, prosecutors do not bring cases to court unless they intend to convict. That is why it is so vital that individuals charged with federal crimes consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney.

A former bank official from Southern California has been implicated in a bank robbery. According to federal prosecutors, the woman wore a fake bomb and pretended to be a hostage while her boyfriend and another man allegedly robbed the bank where she was assistant manager. The woman supposedly had $500,000 placed outside the bank where her co-conspirators allegedly retrieved it. All the while, the police were busy handling the reportedly phony bomb threat.

The two men in the case have already pled guilty in the case and are awaiting sentencing. The former assistant bank manager has pled innocent and is awaiting trial. She was recently released on $50,000 bond and has been placed on an electronic monitoring device.

Federal charges rarely come casually. Typically, federal prosecutors bring indictments against defendants after extensive federal investigations into the matter. With so much on the line, from long federal prison sentences to extensive fines and probation, it is often imperative that individuals accused of federal crimes do all they can to preserve their reputation and freedom. Individuals will want to make sure they fully understand all charges against them in order to build the best possible defense.
