Bank Robber Sentenced

U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that CASEY JOHNSON, age 27, was sentenced today after pleading guilty to one count of Bank Robbery with a Firearm in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 2113(a) and (d) and 2.  The defendant admitted to his participation in the December 2014 robbery of a J.P. Morgan Chase drive-up location in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans.

U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier sentenced JOHNSON to six years in the Federal Bureau of Prisons.  Following the completion of his sentence, JOHNSON will be on supervised release for a period of three years.

The U.S. Attorney Evans wishes to thank the hard work of the FBI’s Violent Crime Unit in investigating this matter.  The case was handled by prosecutors Myles Ranier and David Haller.
