Suspect in $6.6 million heist sentenced to prison
Wednesday, June 1, 2011
ST. LOUIS (AP) — One of four men suspected of robbing an ATM-servicing company in St. Louis last year of $6.6 million has been ordered to spend 19 years in federal prison and repay $3.67 million.
U.S. District Judge Carol Jackson sentenced Ryechine Money on Tuesday after rejecting his request to withdraw his March guilty plea.
Authorities say four people forced their way into ATM Solutions last August, overpowered two guards and stole the money in one of the biggest robberies ever in St. Louis. No one was injured.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Money’s lawyer last week sent a federal prosecutor a letter asking that Money’s guilty plea be withdrawn. In court Tuesday, Money said his attorney pressured him to offer a plea.
