Feds to prosecute Bellagio robbery case

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Aug 6, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The man accused of a robbery at the Bellagio hotel-casino will now be facing federal charges.

The district attorney said those federal charges could get Scott Carmitchel nearly 30 years in prison.

The district attorney confirmed with Action News he will drop state charges because Carmitchel could get more prison time if convicted in federal court.
