Career Offender Bank Robber Sentenced to 192 Months in Federal Prison

Bank Robber on Supervised Release after Serving Time for 2002 Bank Robbery Conviction

DALLAS — A Dallas man, Gregory Wayne Davidson, 53, was sentenced this afternoon by U.S. District Judge Sam A Lindsay to serve a total of 192 months in federal prison, following his guilty plea in October 2015 to two counts of bank robbery, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

According to documents filed in the case, Davidson robbed the Capital One Bank located at 2015 Northwest Highway in Garland, Texas, on June 8, 2015.  Davidson also robbed the Veritex Community Bank, located at 2101 Abrams Road in Dallas, on June 30, 2015.  He was arrested in July 2015.

In each robbery, upon entering the bank, Davidson wrote a demand note on a deposit slip that he presented to a teller.  The tellers, scared and in fear for their lives, complied with the demand and provided Davidson with cash.  Davidson left each bank after he obtained the cash.

Davidson was also convicted in 2002 in the Northern District of Texas on one count of bank robbery and was sentenced in June 2002 to serve 180 months in federal prison.  At the time of these  June 2015 bank robberies, Davidson was on supervised release on that conviction.  Today, Judge Lindsay sentenced Davidson to 168 months on the bank robbery conviction and 24 months for violating his supervised release, to be served consecutively.

The Garland Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case.   Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Robinson was in charge of the prosecution.
