Woman suspected of robbery discovered in jail

| Nov 18, 2013 | Criminal Defense

Marion County, Florida, authorities discovered a woman who was thought to have robbed two banks when being detained at the Hillsborough County Jail. According to jail records, a 53-year old woman, who is believed to have committed robbery, was taken into custody for driving with a license that was suspended or revoked after being pulled over on Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa at around 1:07 a.m. on Nov. 13. She was apparently taken into custody just 12 hours after allegedly robbing a bank on SW State Road 200.

According to the deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the woman was pulled over in the same vehicle that was used to flee the scene after the robbery took place, an older faded, maroon Honda Accord sedan. It is believed that this was the same vehicle used to rob a bank on Dr. Martin Luther King St. N., in St. Petersburg in August.

After detectives in Marion County identified the woman who was supposedly responsible for the robberies, they discovered that she was being held in the Hillsborough County. Officials from Hillsborough County state that they were not aware of the warrant that was out for the woman’s arrest until they received it in the afternoon. The woman apparently has several other warrants outstanding for writing worthless checks. It is unclear if the woman will be moved to Marion County or stay in the Hillsborough County Jail.

Since the woman has been charged with multiple crimes, if she is convicted, she is likely to face several jail sentences and penalties. A lawyer could help her arrange a plea bargain that would enable her to serve time concurrently, shortening her duration in jail. Alternatively, a plea bargain could reduce the charges the woman faces and their penalties.
