Dracula bandit gets 20 years in dark cavern

A man, who robbed the same bank twice in the US state of Atlanta in 2006, while wearing a ghoulish mask, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Nathaniel Little Jr, 43, committed two robberies at the same CDC Federal Credit Union bank in Atlanta, Georgia, each time while wearing the same ghoulish mask.

US attorney David Nahmias said: “This 20 year sentence drives a stake into the heart of a simple yet dangerous crime: robbing banks. This ‘Dracula’ bandit will now spend many nights in the dark and confined cavern of a prison cell.”

He added: “In this scary economy, robbing banks may seem like a quick way for criminals to get money, but the real horror begins once they are caught.”
