After pleading guilty to and admitting he robbed seven banks, the so-called “Fedora Bandit” has been sentenced to nine years in prison.
David Griffith Osborne, a 75-year-old from Carson City, Nevada, will also be under three years of supervised release following his prison time. Back on January 11, Osborne pleaded guilty to robbing three different banks throughout the Sacramento Valley in 2010.
He also admitted to robbing four other banks in the Lake Tahoe and Grass Valley areas.
Osborne was dubbed the “Fedora Bandit” by the Federal Bureau of Investigation because, in all of the robberies, he was wearing a hat, sunglasses and fake facial hair. He also pulled out a gun in each robbery.
Authorities were able to link Osborne to the crimes after they found DNA on a bike he used for to get away from one of the robberies.
Osborne also admitted to robbing a Bank of the West in Carson City. He will have to pay a total of $55,929 in restitution for the robberies.
