Elizabeth NJ Man Appears in Newark Federal Court, Sentenced for Bank Robberies

Newark NJ Bank Robbery ChargesAn Elizabeth NJ man recently appeared in US District Court in Newark for a sentencing hearing stemming from his conviction on bank robbery charges.

The suspect committed a string of 10 bank robberies throughout New Jersey, including the Investors Savings Bank in Elizabeth, the Capital One Bank in North Plainfield, and the Rahway Savings Institute in Colonia. The suspect robbed those banks between August 2013 and May 2014 before he was finally apprehended by FBI agents at his residence in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

The suspect was charged with 10 counts of bank robbery. He ultimately avoided trial by accepting a plea offer from federal prosecutors. In exchange for the suspect pleading guilty to three of the bank robberies, prosecutors agreed to drop the remaining charges against the suspect.

The suspect appeared in the Newark courtroom because he faced federal criminal charges in connection with the bank robbery spree. The U.S. District Court judge sentenced the suspect to a term of incarceration of three years and eight months in federal prison. If the suspect had not reached a plea deal with prosecutors, he would have faced decades behind bars.

Additionally, the suspect has been ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $23,000 for the bank robberies.
