COLORADO MAN SENTENCED TO 16+ YEARS FOR SALINA BANK ROBBERY

TOPEKA, KAN. – Albert Lawrence Vaughan, 41, Loveland, Colo., has been sentenced to 198 months in federal prison for bank robbery, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

In March, a jury in U.S. District Court here returned a verdict of guilty on one count of armed bank robbery and one count of discharging a firearm during a crime of violence.

During trial, prosecutors presented evidence that Vaughan was carrying a firearm on Oct. 15, 2004, when he robbed the First Bank of Kansas, 1333 W. Crawford in Salina, Kan., and that he brandished it and discharged it into a file cabinet located between two tellers. Trial evidence also showed that on Oct. 2, 2004, Vaughan brandished a similar firearm while robbing the Bank of Colorado in Grand Junction, Colorado, in an identical fashion.

Grissom commended the Salina Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Hough for their work on the case.
