Description: Concord, New Hampshire criminal defense lawyer represented Defendant charged with robbing a credit union.
On November 28, 2022, Ethan Clark, ate 31, gave a bank teller at the Service Credit Union in Keene a note demanding money, stealing more than $4,700. Surveillance footage shows that Clark left the bank and walked to a van he stole from his former employer. Later that day, Clark was seen driving the van in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

The charging statute provides a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, 3 years of supervised release, a fine of $250,000 and restitution. 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.
The FBI led the investigation. Valuable assistance was provided by the Keene Police Department and the Lawrence Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Hunter is prosecuting the case.
