Oregon man pleads not guilty to robbery charges

Here in Multnomah, Oregon, it is difficult to challenge allegations of robbery. It affects the level of confidence that other people have in the suspected person, which may affect the suspected person's ability to defend himself in court.

A 60-year-old man entered a "not guilty" plea in federal court regarding the accusations that he robbed a branch of Albina Community Bank three times, two of which occurred this year. The man, accused of stealing $10,643 from the bank's branch at 4020 N.E. Fremont Street, made the plea in the U.S. District Court of Portland. The first instance of the robberies allegedly occurred on June 20, 2011. The second and third robberies occurred on April 22 and June 11, 2013 respectively.

Officers made the arrest after they spotted the man's alleged getaway vehicle five blocks away from the bank. The driver of the car said that the suspect called him to ask for a ride in exchange for gas money. Police released the driver after interrogating him. Police recovered $310 of the suspected $345 stolen from the bank.

If the court confirms that a robbery suspect is guilty, there will be serious consequences. The severity of the punishment for people with a federal theft charge depends on various factors. It depends on the value of the stolen property, if there is force used to obtain the stolen property and if the robbery is a repeat offense. In this case, for instance, there is a possibility that the degree of the charge will escalate because the man is suspected of repeating the offense.

The trial may take time, and it can be a cause of stress to the accused and his or her family. To prove the person's innocence requires a strong defense. A strong defense, not only proves the suspected person's innocence, but also to protect his or her rights.
