Bank Robber Sentenced To 10 Years In Federal Prison

Orlando, FL – Senior U.S. District Judge G. Kendall Sharp has sentenced Duwane Edward Gilmore (27, Mount Dora) to 10 years in federal prison for two counts of bank robbery. The Court also ordered Gilmore to forfeit $4,273.75, the traceable proceeds of the offenses.

According to court documents, on June 4, 2014, Gilmore robbed a Chase Bank in Apopka and obtained $3,273.75. The following week, he robbed a Chase Bank in Sanford and obtained approximately $1,000. Gilmore pleaded guilty to both robberies on September 16, 2014. He received an enhanced penalty as a result of his previous felony convictions for drug offenses and other violent crimes.

This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, the Apopka Police Department, and the Mount Dora Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Embry J. Kidd.
