Same Defendant, Same Bank - But Different Robbery

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Kansas

WICHITA, KAN. - A Wichita man was sentenced Wednesday for robbing a bank that he robbed once before eight years ago, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Mark Finnigin, 52, Wichita, Kan., was sentenced to 63 months in federal prison. He pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. In his plea, he admitted that on July 22, 2014, he robbed Emprise Bank, 2323 S. Hydraulic, in Wichita, Kan. He entered the bank about 9:40 a.m. and demanded a clerk give him $10,000. The clerk put some cash on the counter. Before she could finish, Finnigin took the money and fled the bank. From a nearby store, a surveillance camera recorded him getting in a minivan.

In 2007, he pleaded guilty to robbing the same bank. He was sentenced to 51 months in that case.

Grissom commended the Wichita Police Department, the FBI and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Jacobs for their work on the case
