SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – William Maybank, age 56, of New York City was sentenced today to 39 months in federal prison for robbing a KeyBank location in Utica, New York.

United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman and Janeen DiGuiseppi, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), made the announcement.

In previously pleading guilty, Maybank admitted that, in August 2019, he robbed a KeyBank branch in Utica, New York by pointing an apparent revolver at bank employees and a bank customer in two cubicles outside the teller counter. He then jumped the teller counter and ordered a bank employee to remove cash from multiple drawers at two teller locations. He made off with approximately $6,700 in cash.

In addition to the 39-month imprisonment term, United States District Court Judge David N. Hurd also imposed a 5-year term of supervised release to begin after Maybank serves his term of imprisonment. In addition, the defendant was ordered pay restitution in the amount of money he stole from the bank and was required to pay a money judgment in the same amount.

The FBI, the Utica Police Department, the New York State Police, and the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael D. Gadarian and Matthew J. McCrobie prosecuted this case.
