Kershawn Globe, aka Memphis, 36, of Nashville, Tenn., pleaded guilty yesterday to armed bank robbery and use of a firearm during a federal crime of violence, announced David Rivera, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.  Globe robbed the 5/3 Bank on East Thompson Lane in Nashville, Tenn. on August 2, 2014.

According to the statement of facts, Globe robbed the bank of $6,511.00 at gunpoint, then escaped from police, carjacked a minivan, and eventually met up with his sister, who drove him away.  Globe was captured on August 7, 2014, in Memphis, Tennessee.

Under the terms of his plea agreement with the government, Globe will serve 18 years for the bank robbery, followed by seven additional years for the firearm charge, for a combined total of 25 years in prison.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Globe’s sentencing is set for October 30, 2015, before United States District Judge Kevin Sharp.
