Lewisville Bank Robbery Lawyer
The state of Texas defines robbery as a second-degree felony in which a person is charged with theft, in addition to actually committing, having the intent to commit, or threatening harm towards another individual in the course of the theft. As such, when a person robs a bank and threatens anyone there or harms someone, he or she could be finding themselves facing the serious charge of bank robbery. As an often severely punished crime in Texas, facing such a charge can be frightening and overwhelming.
If a person is convicted of their bank robbery charge, he or she could be penalized severely, depending on their history and the circumstances of the crime. In such a situation, a person could be punished with the following penalties:
- Community service
- Mandatory electronic monitoring
- 2 – 20 years in a prison
- Fines up to $10,000 (varies)
