A Papillion man has been sentenced to 13 ½ years in federal prison for the armed robbery of a northeastern Nebraska bank.
The United States Attorney’s Office says 33-year-old Jonathan Franklin will have to serve five years of supervised release after getting out of prison. He also must pay $23,100 in restitution.
Federal prosecutors say Franklin planned the robbery and put together a team which included Corita Burnett, James Fentress-Dismuke, and Vincent McGee. The group robbed the Security Home Bank of Malmo at gunpoint. They wore black ski masks and gloves.
Police stopped Franklin shortly after the robbery and found a mask and two loaded handguns in the trunk of his car.
Fentress-Dismuke and McGee have pleaded guilty. Their sentences are pending. Burnett has pleaded not guilty and is pending trial.
