For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Connecticut

Leonard C Boyle, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that ANTHONY HALL, 60, of Montville, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven to 52 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for robbing a Norwich bank while he was on supervised release for a prior federal bank robbery conviction.

According to court documents and statements made in court, in April 2011, Anthony Hall was sentenced in Hartford federal court to 87 months of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release, for robbing four Connecticut banks in 2008 and 2009.  He was released from federal custody in January 2016.  On September 13, 2019, while on federal supervised release, Hall robbed the Eastern Savings Bank, located at 666 West Main Street in Norwich, of approximately $2,400.

Hall has been detained since his arrest on related state charges on October 28, 2019.  On April 13, 2021, he pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of bank robbery.

Judge Hall sentenced Anthony Hall to 40 months of imprisonment for the bank robbery, and an additional 12 months of imprisonment for violating the conditions of his supervised release.

This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Norwich Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth L. Gresham.
