Commonwealth v. Timothy Dason Holloman Jr.; 20 Years to Serve for Robbery, Shooting of Bank Customer

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Harvey L. Bryant, Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Virginia Beach, announced today that Timothy Dason Holloman Jr., 29 years old, who previously resided in the 200 block of Pinner Street in Suffolk, Virginia, was sentenced today by Circuit Court Judge Frederick B. Lowe for charges of Aggravated Malicious Wounding, Robbery, two (2) counts of Use of a Firearm, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.  Judge Lowe sentenced Holloman to 53 years in the Department of Corrections with 33 years suspended, leaving 20 years to serve.  Holloman was found guilty by Judge Lowe after a trial on November 16, 2011. 

The Commonwealth’s evidence proved that at around 9 a.m. on January 3, 2011, a manager at the Village Inn on Independence Boulevard in Virginia Beach walked next door to the Bank of America to deposit over $11,000 in restaurant proceeds.  Timothy Dason Holloman Jr. approached him with the lower portion of his face masked.  He shot the victim in the leg as he ordered him to drop the money.  He then repeated the command and shot the victim in the wrist.  As the victim lay on the ground, Holloman took the bag with the money and fled in a gray car.  Virginia Beach police responded, and witnesses provided them with a description of the getaway vehicle.  The victim crawled into the bank for help.  He has since undergone three surgeries. He has permanent plates and screws in his arm, nerve damage, and a constant limp. 

The getaway vehicle was recovered nearby and found to be registered to Holloman’s mother.  Holloman’s fingerprints were on the car, and a receipt from a pawn shop with Holloman’s name on it was found inside it.  A receipt from the Village Inn was also inside the vehicle.  A sweatshirt and mask were found lying on the ground near the scene of the crime.  Holloman’s DNA was on the mask.  Holloman was a former employee of the Village Inn.

Holloman’s criminal record includes convictions for Grand Larceny from the Person, Forgery, Uttering a Forged Check, Grand Larceny, Violation of Probation, and Failure to Appear.

The case was prosecuted by Senior Commonwealth’s Attorney S. Catherine Dodson and Senior Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Nickie L. Herron.  Please contact Macie Pridgen if additional information is desired.
