Topeka Man Sentenced for Bank Robbery
TOPEKA, KS—A Topeka man was sentenced Monday to three years in federal prison for bank robbery, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.
Kirk Mychale Sexton, 27, Topeka, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. In his plea, he admitted that on Jan. 9, 2015, he robbed the Equity Bank at 3825 S.W. 29th Street in Topeka. He entered the bank wearing a blue hoodie with the words “Topeka Water” on the back and handed a clerk a note demanding money. He left the bank with the cash. Police stopped him nearby after seeing red dye from a dye pack on his clothes.
Grissom commended the Topeka Police Department, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jared Maag for their work on the case.
