Ocean County Armed Bank Robbery in Broad Daylight?

While it is common to view a day time robbery depicted in a movie or on TV, it is rare that one actually occurs, especially in Ocean County NJ. Fiction became reality on Monday, however, when two armed men walked into PNC Bank in Brick Township and held up a teller. It is unclear as to the amount of the theft but a reward of $25,000 as been offered.

From the defense perspective, a bank robbery can be quite complicated. The primary complicating factor is that federal banking law comes into play and so too, involvement of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) and possibly the United States Attorneys Office. In this particular case, the Red Bank office of the FBI is involved.

Robbery in a setting such as this is typically a First Degree Crime punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison. However, Federal Law imposes a host of other penalties that can result in even stiffer sanctions in the event that the case is selected for prosecution as a federal case.

Robbery charges are always very serious matters, and should be handled by an experienced attorney from the onset. Our defense team consists of seven experienced criminal defense attorneys, with three former prosecutors on staff, two of whom served as prosecutors within Ocean County.

I'm 45 years old and this was my first time ever getting in trouble with the law. I was in need of a lawyer and after careful research, I called John F. Marshall Attorneys and was introduced to Abe Basch. Abe was professional, supportive and very thorough. I had three charges against me, one civil and two criminal. I was so scared and expressed that to Abe. The first day I had to go to court, I was an absolute nervous wreck but Abe prepped me and kept my anxiety levels down by going over the process of the courts thoroughly with me. He fought to get my charges dismissed and won all three cases (two court appearances). Abe is positive, confident and he ensured I felt the same way. I'd like to say thank you to Abe for working so diligently on my cases to get them dismissed. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest! I highly recommend Abe for any charges you may be faced with. Rose C.
