Bank Robbery Laws in FloridaBank robbery is a very severe crime with some of the harshest possible penalties. Because almost all banks are federally insured, bank robbery is a federal crime. This means that you have incurred the full attention and wrath of the United States Government and they will be aiming to see that you get the maximum possible sentence and fines. For armed bank robbery that means the terrifying penalty of up to 20 years in prison and a $15,000 fine.
