Iowa man gets 10 years prison for bank robbery

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa man with an extensive criminal history has been sentenced to more than 10 years in federal prison for robbing a Sioux City bank.

Prosecutors say Stephan Hall, 53, of Sioux City, was sentenced to 125 months in prison for robbing the First National Bank on Feb. 13.

Authorities say he entered the bank and changed $2 into coins. He then re-entered the bank and handed the same teller a note and fled with money.

Prosecutors say Hall was arrested after authorities quickly identified the robber and discovered his planned escape route, which included a flight out of Omaha, Neb.

Hall spent some of his childhood at a state facility for juvenile delinquents. Later he was convicted of robbery, assault, burglary, escape, domestic abuse and gun possession.
