U.S v. Davis (NDCA, Oakland), 2002

By persuading the court her client was “injured, depressed and remorseful,” Randy Sue Pollock secured a shorter sentence for Rick Lee Davis, who confessed to robbing several banks in Northern California before U.S. District Judge D. Lowell Jensen.

Mr. Davis, claiming he needed the money to support his family, admitted to nine unarmed bank robberies, but he pleaded guilty to six. Ms. Pollock asserted he had sustained brain damage in 1996, when he was in a car accident. That, coupled with financial difficulties and a divorce, prompted the decision to rob the banks.

This case resulted in an in-depth television interview on ABC’s “20/20” with Christopher Cuomo.
