The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Tristan Green, age 28, of York, Pennsylvania, was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner to a 1030-month (85 years, eight months) term of imprisonment for the armed robbery of three banks and must pay $217,178.45 in restitution. Judge Conner also ordered that Green serve 24-months’ imprisonment for violating the conditions of his supervised release relating to an earlier conviction.
In addition to Wednesday’s prison sentence, Green was sentenced to 30 years’ imprisonment on April 4 for a separate armed bank robbery at the Fulton Bank in Etters, Pennsylvania.
Green will serve a total of 117 years and 10 months in prison.
According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, on November 14, 2007, Green and co-defendants Nijul Alexander, Jami Shabazz, and Jamael Stubbs robbed the Sovereign Bank at 1442 Bannister Street, York, Pennsylvania. On September 20, 2007, Green and Alexander robbed the Heritage Valley Credit Union at 777 Kings Mill Road, York, Pennsylvania; and on December 6, 2007, Green and Alexander also robbed the Sovereign Bank at 519 South 29th Street, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Each bank was robbed at gunpoint.
In January 2012, the four defendants were indicted. Alexander and Shabazz both pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing. In January 2013, a jury returned a guilty verdict against Green and Stubbs on armed robbery charges.
Stubbs was also sentenced Wednesday to a 154-month term of imprisonment, three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $2,000 fine.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Capital City Safe Streets Task Force; the Pennsylvania State Police; and the West Manchester, Spring Garden, and Harrisburg City Police Departments. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daryl F. Bloom.
