Stripper Charged in Second Bank Robbery

As reported by Gregory Smith in the February 23, 2016 edition of the Providence Journal, a woman who was out on bail for bank robbery is charged with committing another bank robbery. The woman is accused of committing a second bank robbery in Coventry. She was on bail for alleging committing a bank robbery in Cranston. She is currently being held at the ACI as a bail violator. She has been charged with second degree robbery in connection with the second bank robbery. In the second bank robbery, it appears that she stole a small amount of money. She works at Club Desire in Providence.

Pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws 11-39-1, second degree robbery is defined as every person who shall commit robbery or other larceny from the person by force or threat, where there is no weapon and no injury and the victim is neither a severely impaired person or an elderly person, shall be guilty of second degree robbery.

(c) For the purposes of this section:

(1) "Person who is severely impaired" has the same definition as provided in § 11-5-11;

(2) "Elderly person" means a person sixty (60) years of age or older.

The penalties if convicted include imprisonment for not less than five (5) years nor more than thirty (30) years, or fined not more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or both.

As an alleged bail violator, she is entitled to a bail violation hearing within ten (10) days of her initial court appearance. After a bail hearing, if she is found to be in violation of her bail, she can be held at the ACI for up to ninety (90) days. This prison sentence would be in addition to any sentence on the underlying robbery charges.
