KANSAS CITY — A mid-Missouri man is going to federal prison for 30 years for a pair of bank robberies and a shootout with officers during a chase after the second holdup.
The U.S. Attorney's office said 29-year-old William Alan Wolfe of Fulton was sentenced Thursday. He was also ordered to pay more than $42,000 in restitution to the banks.
The armed holdups took place a week apart in July 2009.
Wolfe pleaded guilty in April to stealing more than $25,000 at gunpoint from the Bank of Brookfield in the north-central Missouri town of Winigan. He also admitted robbing the F and C Bank in Holden of more than $12,000 and firing at law enforcement vehicles during the ensuing chase.
A co-defendant, 20-year-old Michael A. Leak of Columbia, was sentenced earlier this year to more than 15 years in prison.
