EUGENE, Ore. - On January 8, 2013, Ryan Lee Hayes, 26, was sentenced by U.S. District Chief Judge Ann Aiken to serve 71 months in federal prison for bank robbery. Upon his release from prison, Hayes will be on supervised release for three years and was ordered by the court to pay restitution in the amount of $1,300.00.

On July 30, 2012, Hayes walked into the Wells Fargo Bank at 99 East Broadway in Eugene, handed the teller a note that explained he was robbing the bank, and demanded that the teller not do anything funny. Hayes left the bank with $1,300.
