Hendersonville Man Gets 5-10 Years For Nebraska Bank Heist

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Tennessee man with more than 15 years left on a Mississippi bank robbery sentence has been given more prison time in Nebraska.

Online court records say 35-year-old Michael Watson, of Hendersonville, Tenn., was sentenced Tuesday in Lincoln to five to 10 years for robbing a U.S. Bank branch on Jan. 22, 2009. He got away with nearly $3,400, and no one was hurt.

Watson had made a deal with Lancaster County prosecutors and pleaded guilty to a lesser robbery charge.

Authorities said the Lincoln bank was but one of 12 Watson robbed over three months in several states: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, two in Tennessee and one in Utah.
