Woman Sentenced to 63 Months in Federal Prison for Robbing a Bank

DENVER-  The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado announces Georgiana Elizabeth Jones, age 43, was sentenced to 63 months in federal prison for bank robbery.

According to the plea agreement, On October 25, 2021,  Jones entered the PNC Bank located on N. Garfield Street in Denver. The defendant approached the teller and asked for a deposit slip. She also asked questions about what kind of identification was needed for a deposit. She then walked out the front door of the bank and got into the back seat of a black Audi SUV. About 30 minutes later, the defendant returned to the bank wearing the same clothing, with the addition of a black and red baseball hat and sunglasses. The defendant placed a bag onto the counter, along with a demand note, on what appeared to be the same deposit slip she had obtained earlier. The teller complied, and the defendant left the bank.

“We are serious about prosecuting bank robbers. Whether it is one robbery or a series of robberies, with or without a weapon, we will hold you accountable,” said U.S. Attorney Cole Finegan. “We hope this prison sentence and others like it send a clear message to would-be bank robbers that we will not tolerate it.”

“This sentencing is an example of the ongoing collaboration between the FBI, its law enforcement partners, and the United States Attorney’s Office in their commitment to address the issue of bank robberies in the Denver metro area. Thanks to the work of our dedicated partners, this defendant is facing the consequences of her crimes," said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider.

Chief Judge Philip A. Brimmer sentenced the defendant on September 2, 2022. He also sentenced her to supervised release for a term of 3 years.

The FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force investigated this case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Dunn handled the prosecution.
