Sioux City woman who used fake dynamite in bank robbery is sentenced


A Sioux City woman who taped fake dynamite to her body and then robbed a Sioux Falls bank last summer has been sentenced to three years in federal prison.

39-year old Michelle Bock also was ordered to pay $808 in restitution to the First Premier Bank.  U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Bock will be on supervised release for two years following her prison term.

Bock robbed the bank on July 17, 2012. Authorities say she later concocted a story about being kidnapped by two men who supposedly taped the dynamite to her body and forced her to commit the crime.  But she later admitted to making the story up and pled guilty to bank robbery in October.

Bock could have received a sentence of up to 20 years behind bars.
