Life in the federal pen.
That’s what the Department of Justice says a Tampa man’s going to get after he pleaded guilty on Friday to two Charlotte County Bank robberies. Forty-eight year old Franklin Stone was charged with using a firearm during a violent crime and bank robbery after bank robberies in July of 2010 and March of this year. The feds said in both robberies, Stone threated bank employees with a weapon if they called police, and in both cases, he got away with cash. Stone will serve at least seven years in prison.
