Huntsville woman gets nearly 6 years for 3 bank holdups

BIRMINGHAM (AP) — A 35-year-old Huntsville woman was sentenced Friday to almost six years in federal prison for three bank robberies last year.

Angelina Stinnett pleaded guilty to the robbery charges earlier this year and received a prison term of 5 years and 10 months. Stinnett was charged with the July 14 robbery of Compass Bank and the July 26 robbery of AmSouth Bank, both in Madison County; and the Sept. 6 robbery of Peoples Bank in Jefferson County.

Stinnett was ordered to pay restitution collectively to the banks in the amount of $9,211, according to a U.S. Attorney.

Alice H. Martin said in a statement.

Stinnett has been in federal custody since her arrest by Gardendale police on Sept. 6.
