Bank Robber Sentenced In Federal Court

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Brent H. Cox, 58, of Semmes, was sentenced today in federal court for robbing the Iberia Bank on the west I-65 Service Road in Mobile in August of 2015. Cox pled guilty to the bank robbery charge in December of 2015.

United States District Court Judge Charles R. Butler, Jr., imposed a sentence of 109 months imprisonment, and ordered a three-year term of supervised release to follow his release from custody. No fine was imposed but Cox was ordered to pay $100 in special mandatory assessments and restitution to the bank.

The investigation was conducted by the Mobile Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorneys Gina Vann and Gloria Bedwell.
