For Immediate Release
Man Sentenced to 19 Years for Armed Robbery of Hampton Service Center
Gregory J. Haanstad, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced today that Michael Anglin (age 25) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was sentenced by the Honorable Judge Charles N. Clevert to 230 months’ imprisonment for his involvement in the December 9, 2013, robbery of the Hampton Service Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The robbery was committed by three masked men, two of whom were armed with a 9mm handgun and an assault rifle.
Following a trial in April, a jury found Michael Anglin guilty of conspiracy to commit Hobbs robbery, armed Hobbs robbery, discharging a firearm during a crime of violence, and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition. During the robbery, Michael Anglin pistol whipped and shot an employee of the Hampton Service Center, causing life-threatening and permanent injuries. Two other individuals have been charged with committing this robbery, one of whom has plead guilty and is awaiting sentencing, and another who intends to proceed to trial in December.
According to Acting United States Attorney Gregory J. Haanstad: "The United States Attorney’s Office is committed to addressing violent crime in this district and will continue to prosecute and seek substantial prison sentences for those who use firearms in the commission of crimes."
Haanstad also emphasized that "the successful prosecution of this important case was the result of a collaborative law enforcement effort by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Milwaukee Police Department."
Assistant United States Attorneys Kelly B. Watzka and Jonathan H. Koenig prosecuted this case.
