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

A man who robbed two downtown Cedar Rapids banks while he was on federal and state parole for prior bank robbery convictions was sentenced today to more than nineteen years in federal prison.

Jeffrey Haydock, 58, from Watertown, Wisconsin, received the prison term after a June 13, 2014, guilty plea to two counts of bank robbery with a dangerous weapon.    
At the guilty plea, Haydock admitted he robbed the First Federal Credit Union on July 30, 2009, and the Linn Area Credit Union on February 17, 2010.  Haydock further admitted that he was armed with what appeared to be a gun during each robbery.  In a plea agreement, Haydock also admitted he robbed the First Federal Credit Union for a second time on November 12, 2009.  At the time of the robberies, Haydock was on parole for both a 1986 federal conviction for bank robbery and a 1986 conviction in Wisconsin for multiple bank robberies.

Haydock was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade.  Haydock was sentenced to 235 months’ imprisonment.  A special assessment of $200 was imposed and he was ordered to make restitution to the banks.  He must also serve a five-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.

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