Clarks Green Woman Charged with Two Bank Robberies

SCRANTON—The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Lisa Alexis Jury, age 47, of Clarks Green, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Scranton on charges of armed bank robbery.

Lisa Alexis Jury was charged with the robbery of:

  • Peoples Bank, Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, on October 30, 2014;
  • P&G Federal Credit Union, Eynon, Pennsylvania, on May 19, 2015.

According to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith, the robberies were investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Pennsylvania State Police, with the assistance of the South Abington Township Police Department and the Archbald Police.

The maximum penalty under the federal statute for each count of armed bank robbery is 25 years’ imprisonment. Jury also faces a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine if convicted. She is in custody.

Prosecution of this case is assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney John Gurganus.

Indictments and Criminal Informations are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.

A sentence following a finding of guilty is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge is also required to consider and weigh a number of factors, including the nature, circumstances and seriousness of the offense; the history and characteristics of the defendant; and the need to punish the defendant, protect the public and provide for the defendant’s educational, vocational and medical needs. For these reasons, the statutory maximum penalty for the offense is not an accurate indicator of the potential sentence for a specific defendant.
