Federal Grand Jury Indicts Man for Bank Robbery

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that JAMIE PAUL EARLY, age 36, a resident of New Orleans, Louisiana, was charged in a one-count indictment by a Federal Grand Jury for a bank robbery committed on July 27, 2018 at the Capital One Bank at 3001 Tulane Avenue in New Orleans.

If convicted, EARLY faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years and a fine up to $250,000.

U. S. Attorney Evans reiterated that the indictment is merely a charge and that the guilt of the defendant must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.  

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program that has been historically successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions has made turning the tide of rising violent crime in America a top priority.  In October 2017, as part of a series of actions to address this crime trend, Attorney General Sessions announced the reinvigoration of PSN and directed all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to develop a district crime reduction strategy that incorporates the lessons learned since PSN launched in 2001.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  It is being prosecuted by the Violent Crime/Strike Force Unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
