Mobile County Man Sentenced To Seven Years Imprisonment For Using A Weapon In Furtherance Of A Bank Robbery

MOBILE, AL-- United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown announces that Henry Earl Young was sentenced to seven years imprisonment on Friday by United States District Court Judge Kristi D. DuBose, for use of a weapon in furtherance of a crime of violence (bank robbery) in violation of Title 18 USC '924(c).  Young committed an armed robbery of $2,731 from Trustmark Bank located at 1025 Highway 43, Saraland, Alabama on April 24, 2013.  Young was ordered to serve five years of supervised release with the United States Probation Office after he completes his term of imprisonment at the Federal Bureau of Prisons.  Young was also ordered to pay $2,506 in restitution to the bank.  Law enforcement recovered the other $225.00 from Young at the time of his arrest.  Young was also ordered to pay a $100 special assessment which goes into a fund for victims of crime.

United States Attorney Brown stated that the case was jointly investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the City of Saraland Police Department.  Brown highly commended the joint efforts of the two investigative agencies in investigating and prosecuting this case.  Brown added that his office would continue to aggressively prosecute bank robbers and individuals who use weapons in furtherance of a crime of violence, thus endangering the community.
