Iowan gets prison for bank robbery in Nebraska


An Iowa man has been given 10-14 years in a Nebraska prison for bank robbery.

29-year-old Robert Thomas, of Marshalltown, Iowa, pleaded no contest in January to attempted robbery. Prosecutors had reduced the charge in exchange for Thomas' plea.

He was sentenced on Monday in Dakota County District Court.

Thomas also must pay $6,150 in restitution to Bank of the West.

Police say Thomas robbed a Bank of the West branch in South Sioux City on July 23.

Authorities say Thomas told investigators that he robbed the bank so he could pay bills for his family.
