Joe Loya robbed between 32 and 40 banks. (He gave up counting at 32 and the FBI stopped at 40.) In all, it's estimated he made off with a quarter of a million dollars before he was finally caught and sentenced to a demeaning and grueling prison stretch. Unlike most convicts who find religion in prison, Joe lost his there, part of the transformation he describes in his fascinating memoir,
The Man Who Outgrew His Prison Cell.
