Dallas Man Sentenced to 114 Months in Federal Prison for Bank Robberies

DALLAS — A Dallas man, Stephen Christopher Plunkett, 42, was sentenced this week by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay to 114 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $10,220 in restitution for committing three bank robberies, in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex in March 2014, announced U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.

Plunkett pleaded guilty in January 2016 to two counts of bank robbery. He has been in custody since his arrest in June 2015.

According to documents filed in the case and information presented at his sentencing hearing, Plunkett admitted to robbing the following three banks:

        March 24, 2014           Chase Bank, 10729 Preston Road, Dallas

 

        March 25, 2014           Wells Fargo, 14999 Preston Road, Dallas

 

        March 28, 2014           Wells Fargo, 2611 Cedar Springs Road, Dallas

 

Judge Lindsay ordered Plunkett to serve the 114-month sentence in this case consecutively to a 10 year sentence Plunkett received for the April 9, 2014 robbery of a Chase Bank branch located in Forsyth County, Georgia.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated.  Deputy Criminal Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Lisa Dunn prosecuted.
