Louisville Felon Sentenced To 162 Months In Prison For Robbing Multiple Jefferson County Restaurants And Brandishing A Firearm


– Federal Prosecution resulted from “Project Recoil”

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – David J. Hale, United States Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, announced the sentencing today of a Louisville felon charged with robbing three Jefferson County restaurants. The federal prosecution stemmed from “Project Recoil,” the on-going partnership of multiple Jefferson County, Kentucky law enforcement agencies, created by U.S. Attorney Hale to maximize penalties for the most violent offenders and to reduce violent crime in our community.

Kenneth Dion Flintroy Jr., age 25, was sentenced in U.S. District Court on Monday, November 6, 2014, by Chief Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr., to 162 months in prison followed by 5 years of supervised release and ordered to pay $5,583 in restitution.

Flintroy pleaded guilty to four counts of a seven count indictment, on Monday, August 4, 2014, in Louisville. He admitted to robbing the McDonald’s located at 7426 3rd Street Road and the Papa John’s store located at 6902 Southside Drive on April 16, 2013. Further, he admitted to brandishing a firearm while robbing the McDonald’s located at 8600 Dixie Highway on May 2, 2013. The federal robbery charges are brought pursuant to the Hobb’s Act, which criminalizes robberies that affect interstate commerce.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Tom Dyke and Amanda Gregory and was investigated by the Louisville Metro Police Department.
