Lane County woman sentenced in serial bank robbery case

Posted: Updated:
EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

A Lane County woman was sentenced to 22 years and 11 months in prison for robbing several banks across Oregon.

According to the Oregon Department of Justice, Lorinda Marie Goodin pleaded guilty in federal court in February to robbing a Bank of the West in Portland, a Clackamas County Bank in Gresham and a Pacific Continental Bank in Eugene twice in 2011.

Goodin wore disguises, brandished what appeared to be a pistol and threatened bank tellers during the robberies. 

Springfield police arrested Goodin in December 2011 after she was seen driving a stolen car. Officers found a toy pistol and various disguises inside the car. 

Goodin also agreed to be sentenced as a career criminal. In 2003, she was convicted and sentenced to more than six years in prison for robbing eight banks in Multnomah, Clackamas and Marion counties. 

When pleading guilty, Goodin also admitted to robbing 25 businesses across several Oregon counties between August 2011 and December 2011. As part of a plea deal, she agreed to plead guilty to those robberies at a later date in Oregon state court. Each robbery could earn her up to 18 years in prison, to be served concurrently with her federal sentence.
