RALEIGH—United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker announced that in federal court today Chief United States District Judge James C. Dever, III sentenced Dellonte Seburn, 35, of Hyattsville, Maryland, to 132 months of imprisonment and three years of supervised release. Seburn previously pled guilty on October 8, 2013, to one count of bank robbery.
On September 24, 2012, Seburn was transported by taxi to the Mechanics and Farmers Bank in Raleigh, North Carolina, after traveling from Maryland the night before.
