CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) – Three people have been sentenced to federal prison for robbing a bank in the Linn County community of Palo.
Federal prosecutors say 33-year-old Lance Monden, from Cedar Rapids; 36-year-old Stanley Mosley, from Coralville; and 39-year-old Katherine Pihl, from Tiffin, were sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids.
Monden was given 10 years, Mosley was given 11 years and Pihl was given two years. All three had pleaded guilty.
The three were arrested seven minutes after robbing the Palo Savings Bank on May 20. Witnesses provided information about the robbers’ getaway car to law enforcement, and a sheriff’s deputy stopped the car. Prosecutors say Monden and Mosley were hiding in the car trunk.
