Fifty-four-year-old Harrison Lewis III of Catonsville was convicted Monday on six counts of robbery and one count of attempted robbery.

Lewis, who acted as his own attorney, if scheduled for sentencing on Aug. 20. He faces up to 20 years in prison on each count.

Authorities alleged that Lewis was responsible a series of bank robberies in three counties over a monthlong period beginning in December 2016.

The suspect was given his fashion moniker because of the various types of headwear seen being worn by the robber on bank surveillance tapes.

In 2003, Lewis was sentenced to 150 months in federal prison after admitting to robbing 19 banks.
