Illinois man will serve 15 Years for bank robberies in Oklahoma City and Tulsa

OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 20 – David Louis Siany, 52, was sentenced to 15 years for bank robberies committed in Tulsa and Oklahoma City earlier this year, according to John C. Richter, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma.

On Jan. 27, Siany robbed the BancFirst, 809 Cornell Parkway,  in Oklahoma City. On Jan. 22, Siany robbed the Bank of America, 5101 South Sheridan Road, Tulsa.

Siany pled guilty to both bank robberies on April 3. At the time of the January bank robberies, Siany was on supervised release following a federal sentence for three prior bank robberies in 2000.

He had been released from a halfway house in Illinois in November 2008 after serving federal imprisonment from his earlier bank robberies.

United States District Judge Stephen P. Friot sentenced Siany to 156 months of imprisonment for the Oklahoma City and Tulsa bank robberies.

In addition, Judge Friot sentenced Siany to serve an additional 24 months of imprisonment for violating the conditions of his supervised release from his 2000 convictions.

In addition to a prison term of 180 months, Siany was ordered to serve three years of supervised release following his release from prison and pay restitution to the banks in the amount of $7,297.00.
