CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - A 22-year-old Beaumont resident has been ordered to federal prison following his conviction for robbery and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick. Dveaunta Montez Hall pleaded guilty Dec. 17, 2018.

 

Today, Senior U.S. District Judge John D. Rainey sentenced Hall to 100 months in federal prison - 16 months for the robbery offense as well as a 84-month consecutive term for brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. The prison term will be immediately followed by five years of supervised release.

 

On March 14, 2018, the Corpus Christi Police Department (CCPD) responded to an aggravated robbery at the Whataburger located in the 4100 block of South Staples. Hall had entered the business and pointed an assault rifle at employees and customers inside while demanding money from the register. The male then fled the location on foot.

 

Shortly thereafter, responding officers located Hall, who still had the assault rifle in his possession, near the location. During the investigation, officers discovered Hall had stolen the assault rifle from a nearby apartment shortly before committing the robbery.

 

Hall will remain in federal custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility.

 

CCPD and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lance Watt is prosecuting the case.
