Does forcing a customer to withdraw money from an ATM constitute federal bank robbery? Federal circuit courts have come down on both sides of the debate, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit just put in its “yes” vote.

The 10th Circuit weighed in on the issue in United States v. Chavez, examining two opposing sister court rulings from 2005. The issue boiled down to whether the stolen funds were ”in the care, custody, control, management, or possession of” the bank or if the victim controlled the money at the time of the offense.
