Dusty Roe Curry Receives 12-Year Prison Sentence for Kidnapping, Armed Robbery

PHOENIX, AZ (January 13, 2011) – Dusty Roe Curry (DOB 2/19/1973) will serve multiple prison sentences for kidnapping and robbing a victim at gunpoint. Curry was sentenced Wednesday by Judge Daniel Martin to serve 12 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections for armed robbery, 12 years for kidnapping, 3 ½ years for misconduct involving weapons and 3 years supervised probation for possession of marijuana. Curry will serve his prison sentences concurrently and will not be eligible for parole until 2021.

“The sentences imposed for these serious offenses should send a clear message to violent criminals that we will aggressively prosecute and punish them for harming fellow members of our community” remarked Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, whose office prosecuted the case. “Given the courageous actions of the victim in this case, the citizens of Maricopa County are safer today with one more violent criminal off the streets and behind bars,” he added.

Curry kidnapped and robbed an acquaintance at gunpoint in Mesa on April 8, 2010, threatening to torture and kill her if she did not take him to her bank to withdraw money. The victim took Curry to the bank and employed a number of stalling techniques to get the attention of bank employees at the drive-thru teller window. After these efforts failed to alert employees to her distress, the victim managed to place a 911 call on her cell phone and hang up. When the 911 operator called back, the victim pretended to be speaking with a friend and managed to stay on the phone long enough to allow Mesa Police to track her phone and rescue her. In addition to the .45 caliber pistol, officers arresting Curry found a serrated dagger, a club and pepper spray in his possession. A search of his apartment found a quantity of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Curry has a criminal record that includes previous convictions for drug possession, theft and robbery.
