Bank Robber Sentenced to 188 Months in Federal Prison

DALLAS—Ruling that the defendant was a career offender, today, U.S. District Judge Jane J. Boyle sentenced David Asher Agee, 26, of Dallas, to 188 months in federal prison, following his guilty plea in January 2014 to one count of bank robbery, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

Agee admitted that he robbed Prosperity Bank branch located at 333 West Kiest Boulevard in Dallas on October 9, 2013. Early that afternoon, Agee entered the bank, approached a teller’s window, and handed the teller a piece of paper. Agee told the teller that he needed to make a deposit. The teller unfolded the piece of paper that read, in part, “I have a gun give me the money.” Agee took the box in which the teller had placed cash from the cash drawer and left the bank. The ensuing investigation by the FBI and the Dallas Police Department identified Agee as the robber, and he was arrested on a federal complaint in early November 2013.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Robinson prosecuted the case.
