Bank Robber Indicted
NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA –U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that STEPHEN J. SCOTT, age 31, was indicted for one count of Bank Robbery in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2113(a). The defendant is alleged to have robbed the First American Bank and Trust at 1800 Veterans Boulevard, Metairie, Louisiana, on April 9, 2018.
If convicted, SCOTT faces a maximum of twenty years in the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release following his release from prison.
The U.S. Attorney also advises that an indictment is only a charging document, and that the guilt of the defendant must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
U.S. Attorney Evans praised the hard work of the FBI’s Violent Crime Unit and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in investigating this matter. The case is being handled by AUSA Myles Ranier.
