Kaufman Man Sentenced to 123 Months in Federal Prison for Bank Robberies

DALLAS — A Kaufman man, Danny Hall, 51, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Sidney A. Fitzwater to 123 months in federal prison for committing multiple bank robberies, announced U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.

Hall pleaded guilty in June 2017 to one count of bank robbery. He has been in custody since the time of his arrest in January 2017.

According to the plea agreement factual resume, on January 9, 2017, Hall entered the Wells Fargo Bank branch located at 1405 E. Renner Road, Richardson, Texas, and approached a teller.

Later, he was identified in a photographic line-up by the teller and then arrested.

According to the factual resume, Hall also admitted to the following robberies: November 28, 2016 robbery of the BB&T Bank branch located at 11800 Preston Road, Dallas; January 18, 2017 robbery of the Capital One Bank branch located at 4208 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas; and December 22, 2016 robbery of the Chase Bank branch located at 11611 Preston Road, Dallas.
