Arizona Man Pleads Guilty to North Dakota Bank Robbery
BISMARCK ,N.D. (AP) — A Tucson, Arizona, man has pleaded guilty to robbing a North Dakota bank last spring.
Sean Nichols entered his plea in U.S. District Court in Bismarck on Tuesday and is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 26, 2015. He could face more than 15 years in prison.
KXMB-TV reports that Nichols told Judge Daniel Hovland that he was high on methamphetamine when he robbed Dakota Community Bank in Bismarck on May 6 and that he was hoping some time in jail would help him beat the addiction.
Nichols was convicted of robbing two banks in Tucson in 2004. He took nearly $7,000 from the Bismarck bank. All but about $1,700 was recovered.
