Sentencing in Hammond Bank Robbery, Wounded Officer
September 20, 2013 — The United States Attorney’s Office in Hammond says today that a Gary man has a 30-year federal prison sentence for a bank robbery that involved shooting a police officer.
U.S. Attorney David Capp’s office says 25-year-old David Hardin, Jr. has a 365-month sentence, issued by Senior District Judge Rudy Lozano, who also ordered three years of supervised release and $79,919.56 in restitution.
Court records say the sentence follows Hardin’s “guilty” plea to the felony offense of a bank robbery of BMO Harris Bank in Hammond, Indiana, when a Hammond police officer was shot three times in his leg during gunfire as police responded to a bank alarm.
Brealon Miller also was charged with robbing that BMO Harris branch with Hardin in December.
This case was the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David Nozick.
