The true story of America's oldest convicted bank robber

At fifty years of age, J.L. Roundtree was a successful business man, a self-made millionaire, a proud father and a devoted husband. 33 years later, his family was dead and his fortune gone, and prostitution, bank robberies and cocaine had all become part of his daily life.
