The Lubbock family man accused of being the "Saturday Bandit" received the maximum sentence for a bank holdup and robbery in Austin last fall. Federal prosecutors say 41 year-old Timothy Gould committed three armed bank robberies in Lubbock, another in Amarillo, and a final one in Austin between 2000 and 2002.
The bank heists netted Gould more than $750,000. U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks sentenced Gould to 11 years and nine months in prison, the maximum under federal sentencing guidelines. He still faces a nine-count federal indictment in the Lubbock and Amarillo robberies.
