BALTIMORE, Maryland - Marc Munford, age 38, of Randallstown, Maryland was sentenced today to 33 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release for harboring a fugitive, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein stated, "It is a federal crime to help a person seeking to evade capture by law enforcement officers. If you assist a criminal who is trying to avoid being arrested on federal felony charges, you can face up to 5 years in federal prison."
According to the statement of facts presented at his guilty plea on January 5, 2006, Kendall Charles Alexander, Sr. and his son, Kendall Charles Alexander, Jr., age 22, of Baltimore robbed the Wachovia Bank at 1726 East Northern Parkway in Baltimore on August 10, 2005.

Alexander, Jr. was arrested on September 1, 2005, and confessed that he and his father had robbed the Wachovia Bank.
On September 17, 2005, Kendall Charles Alexander, Sr. returned to the same Wachovia Bank, and brandished a revolver to a bank employee and demanded money. Alexander, Sr. took a total of $221,651 from the employees at the bank.
