STANLEY, N.D. (AP) — A Seattle man who robbed a bank in North Dakota has been sentenced to serve 22 years in prison.
Forty-four-year-old Jeremy Maines earlier reached a plea deal with prosecutors on several felony charges related to the April 2017 robbery of American Bank Center in Stanley. Authorities said Maines brandished a pistol and threatened to shoot four female employees. He was arrested after a car and foot chase with police.
The Minot Daily News reports Maines was sentenced Thursday to 20 years in prison with eight years suspended for the robbery, and an additional 10 years for terrorizing.
He was given credit for about 1 ½ years already spent in custody and will be eligible for parole after serving 85 percent of his sentence.
