Selma Resident, Stanley Young Sentenced to 17 Years in Federal Prison for Armed Bank Robbery
(STL.News) United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced today that United States District Judge Terry F. Moorer sentenced defendant Stanley Young, a/k/a “New York,” a/k/a “Shoota,” 32, of Selma, Alabama, to imprisonment for 17 years for committing an armed bank robbery. As part of the sentence, the judge ordered that Young undergo five years of supervised release, pay $47,423 in restitution, and pay a $200 mandatory special assessment.
On December 30, 2019, a federal grand jury for the Southern District of Alabama indicted Young and his two codefendants, Jabriel Bell and Fortune Hoppins, for robbing the bank and for brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. Hoppins and Bell pleaded guilty to the bank robbery charge last July. The Court sentenced Hoppins and Bell each to 10 years in prison.
In October 2020, a trial jury convicted Young on both charges following a three-day trial.
The jury heard the evidence that in September of 2016, Young, Bell, and Hoppins robbed the West Alabama Bank & Trust, a federally insured bank in Marion, Alabama.
