A Kaufman man, Danny Hall, 51, was sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Sidney A. Fitzwater to 123 months in federal prison for committing multiple bank robberies, said U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.
Hall pleaded guilty in June 2017 to one count of bank robbery. He has been in custody since the time of his arrest in January 2017.
According to the plea agreement factual resume, on Jan. 9, 2017, Hall entered the Wells Fargo Bank branch at 1405 E. Renner Road, Richardson, and approached a teller.
He handed her a note that read, “I have a gun, this is a robbery, and give me cash.” The teller gave Hall cash from the teller drawer totaling $2,692. Hall collected the money and left the bank. Later, he was identified in a photographic line-up by the teller and then arrested.
According to the factual resume, Hall also admitted to the following robberies: Nov. 28, 2016 robbery of the BB&T Bank branch at 11800 Preston Road, Dallas; Jan. 18, 2017 robbery of the Capital One Bank branch located at 4208 Lemmon Ave., Dallas; and Dec. 22, 2016 robbery of the Chase Bank branch at 11611 Preston Road, Dallas.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shane Read prosecuted.
