    That is a very serious federal crime. If you are considering it think about doing around 10 years in a federal prison whether you use a gun or not and it does not matter if anyone was injured.

    I would need further information to answer such as exact section of law get charged with, it could also be a federal crime and the penalties are generally higher in federal crimes than in state, how much money taken etc. If you get charged you should hire an attorney and disclose all the facts and circumstances.

    It depends on a variety of factors that are absent from your question. Were you charged by the federal government or by the State? How many counts were you charged with? Were you charged with any other crimes? Are there enhancements or aggravating factors attached to your criminal charges? What is your criminal history? Bank Robbery is a very serious offense, and is generally treated as such. Depending on a variety of factors, and the prosecution's perspective of the case, you may be looking at no time (if you are acquitted or if there are issues that lead to dismissal) or up to multiple years in prison. You should absolutely have an attorney, whether court appointed or retained, to help you through the process if you are the individual who has been charged with bank robbery.
