A bank robber has been sentenced to more than 38 years in prison in two holdups. 42-year-old Timothy Dale Gould was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Lubbock.
Gould had previously been sentenced in June to nearly 12 years for a bank robbery at a Bank of America branch in Austin. Prosecutors said the three heists netted Gould more than $750,000. Gould told a federal judge at last year's sentencing that he was old enough to know better and that he was raised better. Gould, who has three children, was assessed 9 years for his guilty plea in October to robbing the Chase Bank in Plano in June 2002.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said he also received more than 29 years for his plea to two counts of a separate indictment charging armed Credit Union robbery and using a firearm to rob the Westex Federal Credit Union in Lubbock in April 2001.
