Cross-dressing CU robber headed to prison
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (12/16/08)--A U.S. district court judge Friday sentenced a cross-dressing credit union robber to four years and three months in prison. Jimmy Lewis II, was convicted in August of robbing an Alabama CU branch in Decatur last November. Lewis wore women’s clothing and carried a purse when he took $9,600 from the credit union, prosecutors said (Associated Press Dec. 12). The credit union’s surveillance video and employees helped identify Lewis, who was arrested in January after returning on an international flight to the U.S. Alabama CU, based in Tuscaloosa, has $287 million in assets.
