A man who robbed a downtown Cedar Rapids bank while he was on federal supervised release was sentenced today to more than six years in federal prison.

Jacob Allen Mack, 24, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received the prison term after a July 18, 2014, guilty plea to one count of bank robbery.

At the guilty plea, Mack admitted he robbed the downtown Cedar Rapids branch of Hills Bank and Trust on the morning of May 2, 2014.  At the time of the bank robbery, Mack was on federal supervised release following a 2011 conviction in federal district court for unlawful possession of a firearm.

Mack was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade.  Mack was sentenced to fifty-seven months’ imprisonment for bank robbery and was also sentenced to a consecutive twenty-four months’ imprisonment for violating the terms of his federal supervised release.  A special assessment of $100 was imposed and he was ordered to make restitution to Hills Bank and Trust.  He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Mack is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anthony Morfitt and investigated by the Cedar Rapids Police Department.
