A man who authorities say went on a robbery spree after getting out of prison for robbing a Greenville bank has been convicted.

Henderson Hinton was found guilty in federal court in Raleigh today of two counts of armed robbery, one count of bank robbery and three counts of using a firearm during a crime of violence.

Prosecutors say in October 2006 the 30 year old Hinton robbed an insurance agency in Ahoskie, another in Rocky Mount and a bank in Scotland Neck.

The robberies came within a month of Hinton's release from federal prison for holding up a Greenville bank in 2002.

In the Rocky Mount holdup, the feds say Hinton got just $10 in cash.

Sentencing will be in the spring and Hinton faces up to life in prison without parole.
