BIRMINGHAM MAN INDICTED FOR ROBBERY OF DOWNTOWN BIRMINGHAM BANK
BIRMINGHAM - A federal grand jury today indicted a 27-year-old Birmingham man in connection with the June robbery of Regions Bank in downtown Birmingham, announced U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance and FBI Special Agent in Charge Patrick J. Maley.
The indictment filed in U.S. District Court charges QUINTON DUWAN POSEY with robbing the bank on June 10 “by force and violence and by intimidation.”
“Our financial institutions, the people who work within them and the customers who depend on them must be protected,” Vance said. “Bank robbery is a serious crime. We answer it with stern prosecution.”
The bank robbery charge carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years.
This matter was investigated by the Birmingham Police and the FBI. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory R. Dimler is prosecuting the case.
Members of the public are reminded that an indictment contains only charges. A defendant is presumed innocent of the charges and it will be the government’s burden to prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
