Baltimore Man Sentenced to 11 Years in Prison for Bank Robbery

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz sentenced Kurtis Kelvin McGill, age 55, of Baltimore today to 11 years in prison followed by three years of supervised release for bank robbery. 

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Kevin Perkins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and Commissioner Kevin Davis of the Baltimore Police Department.  

According to his plea agreement, on August 27, 2014, McGill told a teller at the Wells Fargo Bank on Fort Avenue in Baltimore City that he had a weapon and demanded “two straps of 50s and two straps of 100s.” McGill took approximately $8,000 from the teller and drove away. McGill was subsequently identified as the robber from the bank’s surveillance video, a surveillance video at a nearby store and by a bank employee.

At the time of the robbery, McGill was on supervised release for a previous federal bank robbery conviction.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised FBI and Baltimore Police Department for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael C. Hanlon, who prosecuted the case.
