RALEIGH, NC—United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker announced that today in federal court, Chief United States District Judge James C. Dever, III sentenced James Robert Lisenby, 56, formerly of Oxford, North Carolina to 188 months’ imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release. LISENBY was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment and restitution of $1,643.00 to SunTrust Bank, Oxford, North Carolina.
James Robert Lisenby was named in an indictment filed on April 18, 2012, charging him with bank robbery, in violation of Title 18 U.S.C. § 2113(a). On April 23, 2013, Lisenby pled guilty to that charge.
According to the investigation, on January 17, 2012, LISENBY entered the SunTrust Bank in Oxford, North Carolina carrying a bag and wearing a ski mask and gloves, with what appeared to be a firearm sticking out of his pocket. LISENBY then approached the counter and demanded money from four tellers and, after receiving the money and placing it in the bag, he fled the bank on foot.
Investigation of this case was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Raleigh-Durham Safe Streets Task Force, Oxford Police Department, and the Granville County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Thomas B. Murphy represented the government.
