Defendant Convicted of Robbery, Series of Attempted Robberies
DATE: December 21, 2023
CASE: Contiee Redicks (Case #19FE018834)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Stephanie Maroun, Major Crimes Unit
On December 20, 2023, Contiee Redicks was convicted by a jury of robbery and four counts of attempted robbery.
On August 5, 2019, a suspect entered a bank on Kiefer Boulevard, passed a note to a bank teller stating he was robbing the bank and immediately demanded the note back after the teller read it. The teller did as the suspect demanded and gave him $2,389. The suspect fled the bank and was not identified at that time. On August 28, 2019, the suspect entered a bank on West El Camino Avenue and again passed a note to a bank teller stating he was robbing the bank before demanding the note back. After the victim hesitated, the suspect fled the scene without any money. Several hours later, the suspect went to a bank on Madison Avenue and again passed a note to a teller stating he was robbing the bank before demanding the note back. This time, the bank supervisor told the teller not to give it back to the suspect and the suspect fled without any money. The same suspect tried to rob two more banks the next day, but was not successful.
In October 2019, the Sacramento Sheriff’s Office developed a significant lead when their crime lab pulled a print from the robbery demand note. The print belonged to Contiee Redicks. Detectives from the Sacramento Sheriff’s Office, Sacramento Police Department, California Department of Parole and the FBI worked together to confirm Redicks was the suspect in the robbery and attempted robberies. At the time of these offenses, Redicks was on parole for a 2015 bank robbery in Alameda County.
Allegations that Redicks has three prior strike convictions for robbery as well as aggravating factors will be determined at the sentencing hearing.
Redicks faces a maximum sentence of 140 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for February 9, 2024, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 33 before the Honorable Laurel White.
