WASHINGTON – Scott Lee Feuer, 58, of Washington, D.C., was sentenced today to six years in prison for robbing two banks in December 2012, announced U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr., Valerie Parlave, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, Cathy L. Lanier, Chief of the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), and Edwin D. Sloane, U.S. Marshal for the District Court of the District of Columbia.
Feuer pled guilty to two counts of bank robbery in October 2013 and was sentenced today by the Honorable Rosemary M. Collyer in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Upon completion of his prison term, he will be placed on three years of supervised release. He also was ordered to pay $698 in restitution.
According to a factual proffer of evidence presented at the time of the guilty plea, on the afternoon of Dec. 26, 2012, Feuer entered a SunTrust Bank in the 900 block of 17th Street NW, approached a bank employee, and handed over a note demanding money. Feuer stole $692 from the bank before fleeing the area. Less than 48 hours later, on the morning of Dec. 28, 2012, Feuer entered a SunTrust Bank in the 1300 block of Connecticut Avenue NW, approached a bank employee, announced a robbery, and demanded money. Feuer stole $2,350 from the bank.
Feuer was apprehended by officers with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) moments later inside the Dupont Circle Metro Station. Some stolen proceeds were recovered.
