U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a man and a woman from Mexico have been indicted by a federal grand jury for bank larceny.

Ismael Espinoza Ortiz and Alejandra Corral Madrid, ages 37 and 26 respectively, were indicted by a federal grand jury on November 14, 2012, for bank larceny. They appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Moreno on November 16, 2012, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both. The charge is merely an accusation, and Espinoza Ortiz and Corral Madrid are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case. Ortiz and Madrid were remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. A trial date has been set for January 8, 2013.
