Hampton woman sentenced for two Seacoast bank robberies
Danielle Reader, 31, of Hampton learned her sentence in U.S. District Court, where she was indicted for a carrying out the bank robberies between April 3 and 20, 2013.
Her boyfriend, Jason Pratt, is serving a 41-month sentence after pleading guilty in November to charges that he robbed three banks, starting with Provident Bank in Seabrook last March 22.
Prosecutors say that Reader made off with $9,270 in cash from two of the robberies and used the money to feed her drug habit. Reader and Pratt together stole more than $11,000 in cash from the three robberies, investigators said.
A confidential informant tipped Hampton police Detective Chris Gilroy that Pratt played a role in the robberies, court records say. Seabrook police Detective Daniel Lawrence was told by another informant two days later that Reader confided that her boyfriend was responsible for the robberies and “that they got over $10,000,” according to a police affidavit.
After Reader gave a statement to police, Pratt decided to talk to police last May 3. At the time, Pratt was being held at the Rockingham County jail on an unrelated charge. Pratt told police that Reader, “had just as much knowledge and involvement as he did,” in planning and carrying out the three robberies, according to Lawrence.
While acting as the getaway driver, Reader told police during the April 3 robbery she “went into Dunkin’ Donuts on Lafayette Road for a coffee” while Pratt walked into the Provident Bank next door and threatened a bank clerk. Reader hopped back into her boyfriend’s truck and drove behind the Galley Hatch restaurant to pick him up, police said.
