DALLAS — A Garland, Texas, man, Brian Dwayne Glass, 35, was sentenced this afternoon by Chief U.S. District Judge Barbara M. G. Lynn to 84 months in federal prison, following his guilty pleas in February 2016 to six counts of bank robbery.

Glass admitted robbing six banks, entering each of the banks with the intent to commit bank robbery.  He acted similarly in each robbery, entering the bank during the late morning or early afternoon hours and verbally demanding from a teller, in an intimidating manner, that they give him all of their money.  In one instance, Glass also grabbed approximately $5,000 cash that was laid out on the counter by a bank customer who was in the process of depositing the cash.
