Local Woman Sentenced to More than 13 Years in Federal Prison for Robbing Chase Bank in Dallas

May 21, 2012

DALLAS — Debbie Regina Norman, 48, of Dallas, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge David C. Godbey to 160 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $3900 in restitution following her guilty plea in January 2012 to one count of bank robbery, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

According to documents filed in the case, Norman entered the Chase Bank, located at 2833 Martin Luther King Boulevard, in Dallas, on the morning of June 15, 2011. She presented a note to a teller that read, “Ima shoot you geme money,” and then began shouting and saying “Right now.” As she was shouting, she put her hand inside of a dark bag as if she had a weapon. The teller gave her cash and Norman left the bank. She was later arrested by officers with the Dallas Police Department and has been in custody since that time.

Dallas Police Department and the FBI investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Robinson was in charge of the prosecution.
