Orlando, FL – Senior U.S. District Judge G. Kendall Sharp today sentenced Kenyada Emanuel Jacobs (42, Casselberry) to 5 years and 10 months in federal prison for bank robbery. He was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,750 to BB&T Bank. Jacobs pleaded guilty on January 15, 2015.

According to court documents, on October 27, 2014, Jacobs robbed a BB&T Bank located in Casselberry, Florida. Officers responded to the scene of the robbery and reviewed the bank’s surveillance footage. The officers recognized Jacobs because they had responded to a domestic disturbance involving Jacobs only hours earlier.        

This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Casselberry Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Embry J. Kidd.
