Man out on supervised release accused of robbery

October 3, 2018

BOSTON (AP) — Federal officials in Massachusetts say a convicted bank robber robbed another bank while he was out on supervised release.

A spokesman for U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling says the 52-year-old man was charged with bank robbery in federal court in Boston Monday. Court documents say the Taunton man stole about $4,600 from an Allston bank in April while on supervised release for a previous bank robbery conviction.

The suspect faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if he is convicted. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine is prosecuting the case.

The suspect was arrested on Aug. 31, and has remained in federal custody.
