Portland Man Sentenced to 103 Months in Federal Prison

PORTLAND, OR - Joseph Angel Giron, 42, of Portland, was sentenced today to 103 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Garr M. King, following his earlier conviction for bank robbery. In addition, the court placed him on three years of supervised release following his prison term and ordered him to pay full restitution to the bank.
Giron plead guilty to robbing the U.S. Bank, Citizens Branch, 636 SE Grand Avenue, Portland, on October 20, 2010. He used a demand note reading “Give Me All Your Money,” which he presented to the teller, who provided Giron with $3,481.
Responding Portland Police officers saw a man matching the description of the robber exiting a Tri-Met bus, wearing the same clothing and with distinct facial scars described by the victim teller. He was taken into custody, the bank loot was recovered, and Giron was positively identified by the victim teller when he was returned to the bank. Giron indicated he was “dope sick” and was a user of heroin.
Giron received an enhanced sentence as a career offender based on his prior felony convictions for a previous bank robbery and a robbery of a gas station. This case was investigated by the Portland Police and the FBI. It was prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorney Johnathan Haub.
