Eight years in lockup for accused Missouri robber

On Oct. 3, a district judge in St. Louis handed down a pair of jail sentences to an Iowa man who apparently confessed to an armed robbery. The incident took place on Jan. 17, when the 26-year-old man robbed a bank with a 27-year-old female. In addition to the criminal charges he faced for the robbery itself, he was also accused of illegally possessing a 9mm firearm that he used to commit the crime.

Although the man initially went free after the incident, Missouri State Highway Patrol officials initiated a manhunt and took him into custody after two hours. Along the way, he was followed by a local resident who apparently reported him to the authorities. He abandoned his vehicle, and police dog later discovered him in Macon County.

According to the prosecutors, the two defendants were in a relationships. When the woman tried to break it off, the man told her that he had leukemia and needed money for treatment. He also threatened to commit suicide if she did not agree to pick him up after the robbery. Her involvement with the robbery was described as "minor and minimal." Nevertheless, she faces a sentence that could be up to 4 years in federal prison.

Criminal charges can make things very difficult for the accused and convicted. These individuals may spend exceedingly long amounts of time in the jail system; such incarceration periods may render their job skills irrelevant or make it harder for them to maintain gainful employment and meet the terms of their probation upon their eventual release. Attorneys may be able to help these individuals avoid getting trapped in such cycles by appealing sentences or fighting charges.
