Friday, September 28, 2012
CAMDENTON, Mo. (AP) — Thirteen years after robbing a southwest Missouri bank, a man has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to prison.
Forty-eight-year-old Joel Lee Davis of Independence pleaded guilty Thursday to robbery and armed criminal action in the September 1999 robbery of the Bank of Macks Creek. He escaped with nearly $18,000 in cash. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison for robbery and four years for armed criminal action.
The Lake Sun Leader reports (http://bit.ly/SIfN4T ) Davis has been in the Camden County Jail since his arrest in 2011.
He was linked to the crime by DNA samples from a pair of pantyhose he wore over his face and a bandana he used during the robbery. DNA from that disguise was matched with a DNA sample Davis gave years later.
