SAN ANTONIO - A 45-year-old San Antonio man was sentenced Tuesday morning to more than 41 years in federal prison after being convicted on Dec. 9, 2015, of two counts of bank robbery.

The Department of Justice said Joseph Krist robbed the Lone Star National Bank of San Antonio of about $9,645 on Nov. 23, 2012, and the Lone Star Capital Bank of about $8,188 on Jan. 7, 2013.

The DOJ said jurors also concluded Krist used a firearm to assault a Lone Star Capital Bank employee during the robbery.

The sentencing judge, finding Krist to be a danger to the community and a violent person, sentenced him to 240 months in federal prison for the Lone Star National Bank robbery and 262 months in federal prison for the Lone Star Capital Bank robbery.

The DOJ said the two prison terms would run consecutive to each other and a 30-year federal sentence Krist is already serving for a 2013 Corpus Christi bank robbery.

Krist was also ordered to pay a combined restitution of $17,833.

Krist's co-defendant, Rebecca Marie Brown, 48, of San Antonio, was sentenced on Feb. 12, 2016, to five years in federal prison and ordered to pay $8,188 restitution for her role in the Lone Star Capital Bank robbery.
