Williamstown Man Indicted for Robbing Crescent Springs Bank
|U.S. Attorney’s Office September 09, 2011|
COVINGTON—The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Kentucky and the FBI jointly announced today that a Williamstown man was indicted for robbing a Crescent Springs, Ky., bank in May of this year.
A federal grand jury in Covington returned the indictment yesterday which charges 28-year-old Matthew L. Grant with one count of bank robbery.
The indictment alleges that on May 9, Grant robbed the Heritage Bank in Crescent Springs using force, violence, and intimidation.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the FBI and the Erlanger Police Department. The indictment was presented to the grand jury by Assistant United States Attorney Christopher L. Nasson.
Grant’s appearance before the United States District Court has not yet been set by the court in Covington. If convicted, Grant faces a maximum prison sentence of 20 years. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the United States Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of sentences.
The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only, and that person is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
