CINCINNATI -- A man charged with robbing four banks in 2012 to buy pills and heroin received the maximum sentence Monday morning in Judge Barry Kubicki’s Hamilton County courtroom.
Ahmad Shalash, 40, was sentenced to 44 years in prison for robbing a Fifth Third branch in Cheviot, an Emery Federal Credit Union, a Cheviot Savings Bank and the First Financial in Deer Park.
Shalash was one of three people charged with the robberies.
His wife, Jennifer Neitz Shalash, testified against him on Oct. 2, saying he was the driver of a white getaway van used in the four robberies.
Gus Leon, the prosecutor in this case, called the duo a modern day Bonnie and Clyde.
Shalash was charged with three counts of robbery and two counts of aggravated robbery with specifications.
