ROCHESTER, N.Y.--U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Maximilion Broadnax, 31, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of robbing the Chase Bank at 900 Dewey Avenue in Rochester, was sentenced to eight years in prison by U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles E. Moynihan, who handled the prosecution of the case, stated that on May 22, 2015, Broadnax’s co-defendant, Tiffany Hogan, entered the Chase Bank just after it opened and passed the bank teller a note drafted by Broadnax. The note demanded money and stated that nobody would be hurt if the teller complied. After receiving a specific amount of United States currency, Hogan left the bank and got into a white minivan in which Broadnax was waiting and the two drove away from the location. 

Hogan and Broadnax were arrested later that same day at 17 Second Street in Rochester by members of the Rochester Police Department who were looking for Broadnax in connection with his involvement in stolen vehicles. While taking Broadnax into custody, officers saw that Broadnax’s pants fell down and a large amount of United States currency fell out. 

Tiffany Hogan was also convicted of bank robbery and sentenced to 96 months in prison. 

Today’s sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Adam S. Cohen, Special Agent in Charge, as well as the Town of Greece Police Department, under the direction of Chief Patrick Phelan, and the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of Chief Michael Ciminelli.
