CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — An eastern Iowa man who pleaded guilty to robbing two Cedar Rapids banks four separate times has been sentenced to 31 years in federal prison.
The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa says 29-year-old Javon Dockery, of Cedar Rapids, was sentenced Monday on four counts of bank robbery and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. He pleaded guilty in October.
As part of his plea, Dockery admitted to robbing a Cedar Rapids branch of U.S. Bank in April and June 2014. He also admitted to robbing a Cedar Rapids branch of Guaranty Bank twice in May.
The sentence calls for a restitution payment of $25,935 to the two banks and five years of supervised release after Dockery's prison term.
