Cedar Rapids Man Charged With Committing Four Robberies At Two Different Cedar Rapids Banks

Javon Dockery, age 29, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has been indicted on four counts of bank robbery and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.  The charges are contained in Superseding Indictment filed on August 13, 2014, in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids. 

Dockery and Bria Daudinot, age 21, also of Cedar Rapids, had previously been charged in a July 8, 2014 Indictment with one count of bank robbery.  The Superseding Indictment brings the total number of robberies charged against Dockery to four.  No new charges were brought against Daudinot.

The Superseding Indictment alleges that, on or about April 30, 2014, Dockery robbed the 16th Avenue branch of the US Bank in Cedar Rapids.  The Superseding Indictment also alleges that, on both May 16 and May 29, 2014, Dockery robbed the Bever Avenue branch of the Guaranty Bank in Cedar Rapids.  Finally, as was charged in the original Indictment, the Superseding Indictment alleges that, on June 26, 2014, Dockery and Daudinot robbed and aided and abetted the robbery of the 16th Avenue branch of the US Bank in Cedar Rapids, and Dockery possessed and brandished a firearm in furtherance of that robbery. 

If convicted on all charges, Dockery faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 7 years’ imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $1,250,000 fine, a $500 special assessment, and up to 17 years on supervised release following any imprisonment.  If convicted, Daudinot faces a possible maximum sentence of 20 years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, a $100 special assessment, and up to 3 years on supervised release following any imprisonment.

Dockery and Daudinot are both being held without bond.  Their next appearance for trial is set for September 22, 2014.

As with any criminal case, a charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Cedar Rapids Police Department, and the Sixth Judicial District Department of Correctional Services.
