Memphis man's restitution reduced 50 cents

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -

A man convicted in a Memphis bank robbery has won a small-change victory from an appellate court.

In a ruling announced Thursday, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals left intact the conviction and the 52-month sentence of Calvin Rene Calhoun Jr.
Calhoun was charged in the robbery of a Regions Bank office in Memphis two years ago. Calhoun pleaded guilty and was sentenced.

While the appeals court upheld the federal district court, it did remand the case for two minor corrections. One reduces the restitution Calhoun must make by 50 cents, to $4,259. That's the value of cash burned when a dye pack exploded as he fled the bank. The judge didn't mention 50 cents orally at sentencing.
