United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man convicted of robbing a bank at gunpoint was sentenced on November 4, 2013, by Senior U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.
Nathan Michael Reisetter, age 39, was sentenced to 117 months in custody. He received 57 months for Bank Robbery and 60 months for Possession of a Firearm in Relation to a Federal Crime of Violence, to be served consecutively. He will be under supervised release for 5 years upon his release from custody. He was fined $12,500 and ordered to make restitution of $26,355.
Reisetter was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 19, 2013, on both counts and pled guilty on August 13, 2013.
On January 2, 2013, Reisetter entered First Bank and Trust in Toronto and used a 9mm handgun to intimidate the two tellers present. He handed one of the bank tellers a garbage bag and told her to fill it with money from the vault. Once the Defendant had the bag of money and while still holding the firearm, he directed the tellers to a back room of the bank and fled.
This case was investigated by the Deuel County Sheriff's Office, the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney John E. Haak prosecuted the case.
Reisetter was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
