DAVENPORT, IA – On Friday, October 6, 2017, United States District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger sentenced Bridgette Durborow, 48, of St. Peters, Missouri, to 24 months in prison for Bank Robbery, announced United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum. Durborow was also ordered to serve three years of supervised release following her imprisonment and pay $100 to the Crime Victim’s Fund.

On June 8, 2017, Durborow pleaded guilty to the charges, which arose from an investigation of the robbery immediately after it occurred.
