Criminal defense: Tennessee man charged with multiple robberies

On Behalf of | Sep 23, 2018 | criminal defense

A 24-year-old Tennessee man has been charged with three counts of bank robbery and has already been indicted by a federal grand jury. The man, who comes from Murfreesboro, will need a strong criminal defense to fight the charges. He is accused of robbing several banks in Nashville and Clarksville. 

Cops figured the accused as a suspect after he purportedly matched the description in multiple robbery incidents. Apparently, he allegedly would approach a teller with a note that demanded money. Authorities did not say if a weapon was involved on these occasions. The authorities say he would flee on foot after getting an undisclosed amount of cash.

The man was found in West Tennessee. He was brought in by the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force with the help of the Metropolitan Police Department and the Clarksville Police Department. The accused could spend up to 20 years in prison for each of the three charged counts if he is convicted.

Facing a serious charge like robbery may need the help of a prudent criminal defense team. Those in Tennessee facing felony charges will likely benefit from the assistance of an experienced attorney, particularly since a conviction could turn a person’s life upside down. Convictions for felony crimes must be reported when applying for most jobs or college and those convictions could follow a person throughout his or her life. A person so convicted will also lose the right to carry a gun and to vote, so fighting these charges as aggressively as possible is a must and an attorney will protect his or her client’s rights, explain the charges and help to build a meaningful defense.
