This case arises from Gary Watkinss conviction on multiple counts of armed robbery, conspiracy, and firearms violations. On six different occasions, Watkins and/or his accomplices brandished firearms in the abduction of employees of different banks and cash-lending institutions from their homes in the Columbus, Ohio area. The men took the employees-and in some cases their families-to the employees respective places of employment and forced them to open safes and vaults. Watkins and his accomplices then fled with the cash they removed. After a jury found Watkins guilty on all counts, the district court sentenced him to 1,772 months in prison.
