Jury convicts man of robbery at a Gainesville bank
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - A sentencing date is set for the man convicted of trying to rob someone at a Wells Fargo in Gainesville in 2018. It follows another case where the man is accused of attacking his own attorney.
Obadiah Dillard, 45, was convicted of multiple robberies. In 2018, Gainesville Police say they responded to the Wells Fargo on Northwest 13th Street, where they say Dillard threatened a customer and took their money.
He was found guilty by an Alachua County Jurry following a two-day trial. His sentencing is set for Sept. 20.
Dillard was previously convicted of aggravated battery and sentenced to 30 years after he punched his defense attorney during a separate trial on Nov. 15, 2022.
