A Boston man has pleaded guilty to robbing a TD Bank branch in Boston.
According to a report, Coleman Nee, 42, pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery before U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani who scheduled sentencing for March 9, 2023.
“Nee was indicted by a federal grand jury in July 2021,” the report says.
It was reported that on the afternoon of April 26, 2021, Nee entered a TD Bank branch in Boston, showed a teller what appeared to be a firearm and threatened to kill a teller and a bank customer before robbing the bank of $990.
“Within approximately 20 minutes of the robbery, Nee was apprehended by law enforcement due to a GPS tracker attached to one of the stolen bill packets,” the report states
The charge of bank robbery provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, up to three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000.
Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case.
