A person robbing a bank can't get 20 years or more in Prison. Robbing a bank has higher consequences and much harsher punishment that just robbing a store.

And if you walk into the bank and hold the bank up with a gun then you can get even more time for Armed Robbery of a bank.

I think there's a typo in your post. You said a person can't get 20 years in prison when it should be can.

You're likely to get sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Robbing a bank is considered a Federal offense.
