BANK ROBBER SENTENCED TO OVER 11 YEARS IN PRISON
Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake sentenced Robert Nathaniel Brown, age 48, of Baltimore, today to 140 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for bank robbery, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Judge Blake enhanced Brown’s sentence after finding that he is a career criminal based on three previous robbery convictions and ordered that Brown pay restitution of $1,400.
According to his guilty plea, on September 19, 2006, Brown entered the Wachovia Bank at 8600 Washington Boulevard, Jessup, Maryland, approached a teller and demanded money. Brown took approximately $1,438 from the teller. Brown then left the bank, but in his haste left behind an envelope which he had intended to use to hold the stolen money. The envelope contained Brown’s fingerprints.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for its investigation in this case, and commended Assistant United States Attorneys Steven H. Levin and Paul Tiao, who prosecuted the case.
