Cooper City Man Convicted of Bank Robbery Seeks Appeal
In a recent case involving a man from Cooper City, Robert Watson was convicted of Bank Robbery. He was sentenced to twelve years and eight months in federal prison.
Watson asserted that he was not a career criminal which was the main reason for the lengthy sentence although he was previously convicted of bank robbery on two other separate occasions before in the past.
He also maintained that bank robbery was not a crime of violence which is a point of law that is necessary by definition to mark him to be considered as a career criminal.
The Appeals Court researched and cited previous case law and couldn't find any examples that the district court committed any clear error in judgment when arriving at the time-frame of its sentence.
Without going into much further detail Mr. Watson's appeal was denied.
