  • Man says he robbed bank to get away from wife

    From: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/weir...y/1212802.html

    A central Pennsylvania man said he robbed a bank in 2007 to go to jail and get away from his overbearing wife. At a sentencing hearing Monday, 39-year-old Anthony Miller said he robbed a bank in Ephrata because he wanted to leave his then-wife but she had threatened to commit suicide if he did.

    Defense attorney Robert Beyer said Miller approached tellers with a BB gun, asked for money and told them to call the police. He said Miller even asked for updates on their efforts to reach authorities.

    Miller pleaded guilty in June. Lancaster County Judge Louis Farina sentenced him to three to six years in prison on Monday.

    Beyer said the couple divorced within the last year.

    Well he is really not going to like his new wife in prison. Why not commit a less serious offense? or no offense at all and let the authorities put an M1 hold on your suicidal wife?

        I heard a radio report that the wife showed up at the scene to reclaim her car that the robber used. Supposedly, one of the officers at the scene is quoted saying that after spending 20 minutes dealing with her, he was considering bank robbery to get away from her as well!
