Dannie Simon Parker Jr., who was found guilty last month of robbing PNC bank off Julian R. Allsbrook Highway, is scheduled for sentencing on August 5, according to electronic court records filed in the federal system.

Sentencing for Parker in the 2017 heist is set for 9 a.m. at the federal courthouse in Raleigh before District Judge James C. Dever III.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina said last month Parker faces a maximum sentence of 20 years followed by supervised release of three years and a fine up to $250,000.

Parker utilized a handwritten demand note and stole $1,975 from the bank before fleeing.

In the passenger seat of the car Parker was driving were the funds from the robbery, as well as the demand note, and various other incriminating items.

Parker had two prior convictions for federal bank robbery and was on federal supervised release at the time of the robbery.

Investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Roanoke Rapids Police Department, and the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.
