Spokane Man Sentenced For Coeur d'Alene Robbery
COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A 40-year-old Spokane, Wash., man has been sentenced to five years in prison for robbing a Coeur d'Alene bank in January 2010.
The U.S. attorney's office says Michael Richard Kent was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge. Kent also was sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $3,175 in restitution.
Prosecutors alleged Kent robbed Washington Trust Bank by handing a teller a note demanding bundled cash. The note contained a reference to a gun.
'Video footage of the robbery assisted investigators in identifying Kent as the robber. A search of his residence turned up clothing matching items worn by the bank robber.
Kent's most recent sentence will be served while he's also serving a nearly 11-year sentence for two Spokane bank robberies in December 2009.
