DALLAS — The bank robber who was dubbed the “Checkbook Bandit” by the FBI, as he used a checkbook registry to display his demand notes in the robberies, Victor Lemond Williams, 43, of Dallas, was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade to 90 months in federal prison.
Williams has been in custody since his arrest in January 2012. U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña, of the Northern District of Texas, made the announcement.
Williams pleaded guilty to an indictment charging five counts of bank robbery, admitting that he committed the following five bank robberies in Desoto, Texas:

• Bank of America—Sept. 22, 2011,?931 W. Beltline Road; Jan. 3, 2012
The case was investigated by the Desoto Police Department and the FBI. Assistant U.S. Attorney Taly Haffar was in charge of the prosecution.
