|U.S. Attorney’s Office January 30, 2012|
ST. LOUIS—The United States Attorney’s Office announced today that three men have been indicted for their alleged assistance in concealing stolen money from the August 2010 robbery of ATM Solutions.
Robert Oliphant, 59, Buffalo, MO; his brother Eddie Oliphant, 43, and their nephew Jacobi Oliphant, 26, both of St. Louis County; were each indicted by a federal grand jury on one felony count of accessory after the fact. They were arrested late Friday and are scheduled to appear in federal court Tuesday afternoon.
If convicted, this charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and/or fines up to $125,000. In determining the actual sentences, a judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Tom Mehan is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
As is always the case, charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.
