Bank Robber Sentenced

bank robber

The man convicted of the New Year’s Day robbery of a Jackson bank will spend six years in jail before being deported.  Australian author Corey Donaldson described himself as a “Robin Hood” taking money to give to the poor.  He told the court of growing up in a town where a bank foreclosed on his family’s home while posting record profits. Representing himself in the trial last May, he told the jury he’d pulled off the heist to help the homeless and to protest at how banks preyed on customers. Donaldson’s efforts yielded over $140-thousand during the robbery.  From there, he traveled to homeless shelters in Nevada, California and Oregon handing the ill-gotten money out.  He has already begun pitching his story to publishers hoping to make a deal on a book.
