• Man on supervised release for bank robbery accused of robbing Allston bank


    BOSTON - Federal officials in Massachusetts say a convicted bank robber robbed another bank while he was out on supervised release.

    A spokesman for U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling says the 52-year-old man was charged with bank robbery in federal court in Boston Monday. Court documents say the Taunton man stole about $4,600 from an Allston bank in April while on supervised release for a previous bank robbery conviction.

    The suspect faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if he is convicted. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine is prosecuting the case.

    The suspect was arrested on Aug. 31, and has remained in federal custody.
