From the U.S. Attorney's Office:

NEW ORLEANS – U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser announced that TERRY MADISON, age 22, was sentenced yesterday for committing robbery of a Walmart Money Center located in Hammond, Louisiana, on April 14, 2018. Judge Jay C. Zainey sentenced MADISON to a sentence of 151 months in the Bureau of Prisons, three (3) years of Supervised Release following prison, and a $100 mandatory special assessment. The Court also ordered MADISON to repay Walmart $3,448.10 taken in the robbery.

MADISON admitted that he entered the Walmart and passed a demand note to the cashier in the Money Center, and also reached to his waistband, implying that he was armed with a firearm. The teller complied with the demand, and MADISON escaped with over $3,000 in cash.

U.S. Attorney Strasser praised the hard work of the Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Violent Crime Unit and the Hammond Police Depart in investigating this matter. Assistant United States Attorney Myles Ranier was in charge of the prosecution.
