Leader of violent armed robbery crew sentenced to 60 years in prison

NEW YORK – A man, who was found guilty in federal court to nine charges for participating in a conspiracy to commit robberies, was sentenced in federal court to 60 years in prison.

Louis McIntosh, 32, was convicted last August after a nine-day trial.

McIntosh, of the Bronx, and other men robbed a card game at a men’s club in Poughkeepsie on October 28, 2010 during which he pistol-whipped two victims and fired a gun. He also robbed a business owner in his Long Island home one month earlier, tying him up at gunpoint and assaulting him repeatedly with a stun gun.  A number of co-conspirators were also prosecuted in connection with the case.

“Louis McIntosh led a violent armed robbery crew that victimized New York area communities for years,” said Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara. “Not satisfied to rob at gunpoint, McIntosh even pistol-whipped and tortured his victims. Today’s 60-year sentence provides a fitting end to McIntosh’s criminal career.”
