FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

April 4, 2011

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Lawrence man has been sentenced to 108 months in federal prison for robbing the KU Credit Union, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Timothy Hays, 22, Lawrence, Kan., pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kan., to one count of bank robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during that robbery. In his plea, Hays admitted that on July 12, 2010, he robbed the KU Credit Union at 3400 West 6th Street in Lawrence, Kan. He entered the building carrying a .38 caliber handgun, which he pointed at a teller when he demanded “everything you got.” A Lawrence police officer arrested Hays later that day after recognizing him from bank surveillance photos.

Grissom commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Lawrence Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Leon Patton for their work on the case.
