Five members of Milwaukee family sentenced for involvement in numerous bank robberies

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced Friday that five members of a Milwaukee family were sentenced to prison for their involvement in several armed bank and business robberies in Milwaukee and West Allis.

The siblings received the following sentences:

  • 25-year-old Bobby Mickey was sentenced to 184 months in prison after pleading guilty to five robberies and one count of brandishing a firearm in connection with a crime of violence.
  • 29-year-old Terrill Brown was sentenced to 154 months in prison after pleading guilty to three robberies and one count of brandishing a firearm in connection with a crime of violence.
  • 21-year-old Brandon Mickey was sentenced to 152 months in prison after pleading guilty to four robberies and one count of brandishing a firearm in connection with a crime of violence.

The siblings were involved in a series of bank and commercial robberies in 2015 and 2016, the purpose of which was to obtain money, liquor, and firearms. The sisters, Dominique and Doris Brown, aided and abetted the robberies by “casing” the banks and holding doors open at locked entrances to allow their brothers access to the banks.

At the sentencings, federal prosecutors discussed the emotional, life-long impact these violent crimes have on the victims, and the financial impact of these crimes on the community. At the sentencings, Judge Stadtmueller also noted that these types of violent acts “cry out” for lengthy prison terms.
