DALLAS—Kenslesl Ambca Williams, 31 of Dallas, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge David C. Godbey to 52 months in federal prison for robbing a bank and then attempting to escape from federal custody, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.
According to documents filed in the case, Williams robbed Prosperity Bank located on West Kiest Boulevard in Dallas on January 4, 2012. He was arrested later in the day after he tried to exchange dye-stained cash for clean, unmarked money. Williams was charged in a felony complaint with bank robbery.
On January 5, 2012, he made his first court appearance on the charge before a U.S. Magistrate Judge in federal court in Dallas. The judge entered an order detaining Williams during the pendency of the bank robbery charge. However, after he was ordered detained, Williams ran out of the courtroom in an attempt to escape from federal custody. He was apprehended in the hallway outside of the courtroom.
The case was investigated by the FBI and the Dallas Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Robinson was in charge of the prosecution.
