WICHITA, KS—A Wichita man has been sentenced to federal prison after pleading guilty to a 2012 robbery at the Intrust Bank in Valley Center, Kansas, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Terry G. Revels, 50, Wichita, Kansas, was sentenced to 19 years and seven months in federal prison. He pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery.

During the sentencing hearing, prosecutors told the judge that Revels and three other defendants took part in the October 18, 2012, robbery of the Intrust Bank at 142 North Ash in Valley Center, Kansas. Revels and one of the co-defendants entered the bank, vaulted the counter, and demanded money. Two of the other co-defendants remained outside in a car, acting as lookouts.

After the robbery, a Valley Center police officer stopped Revels and two co-defendants in a white Cadillac. The defendants fled on foot. Revels entered a home in the area, tied up a 15-year-old boy, and took his cell phone. Revels later was arrested hiding in a truck.

Co-defendants are:

  • Henry J. Adams, III, who pleaded guilty and is set for sentencing August 5.
  • Dlaney M. Nixon, who is awaiting trial.
  • Veronica K. Johnson, who pleaded guilty and is set for sentencing June 12.

Grissom commended the agencies that took part in the investigation including the FBI, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office, the Valley Center Police Department, the Wichita Police Department, the Kansas Highway Patrol, the Park City Police Department, the Maize Police Department, the Kechi Police Department, the Haysville Police Department, the Colwich Police Department, the Andale Police Department, the Mount Hope Police Department, and the State Parole Office, as well as Assistant U.S. Attorney David Lind, who prosecuted the case.
