Jacksonville Federal Bank Robbery Defense Attorneys
As all banks in the United States are part of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, federal courts have concurrent jurisdiction over all bank robberies under 18 U.S.C. § 2113. In some instances, where bank robberies cross state lines, the federal government may decide to bring charges in federal court. The guidelines for bank robberies in federal court are significant, and if a firearm is used, 18 U.S.C. § 924 brings in stiff penalties, including mandatory minimum sentences.
Because these are serious charges, superior criminal defense attorneys should be retained. Consider hiring the federal criminal defense attorneys at The Arnold Law Firm Firm.
