Man Pleads Guilty to Wichita Bank Robbery
WICHITA, KS—A man pleaded guilty Tuesday to robbing a Wichita bank, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom.
Frederick Aaron Cunningham, 45, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. In his plea, he admitted that on Oct. 28, 2013, he robbed the Intrust Bank branch in the Dillons grocery store at 3211 S. Seneca. He also admitted he robbed the same bank on Oct. 9, 2013.
In the Oct. 28 robbery Cunningham gave the teller a note demanding money and then left the bank with stolen cash. Once outside the bank, he discarded a shirt worn during the robbery. Investigators used the results of DNA testing on the shirt to tie the crime to Cunningham.
Sentencing is set for Feb. 18. Both parties have agreed to recommend 10 years in federal prison.
Grissom commended Wichita Police Detective David Alexander, FBI Special Agent Ryan McDonald and Assistant U.S. Attorney David Lind for their work on the case.
