PLEA AGREEMENT: Bank Robbers Take Deal
Two men involved in a northeast Iowa bank robbery and shootout last October have pleaded guilty to Fayette County charges.
Twenty-five-year-old Jeremiah Mumford and 19-year-old William Clayton were charged with first degree robbery, terrorism and two counts of attempted murder.
The charges stem from a bank robbery in Maynard on October 30th, 2012.
While on the run the pair fired on officers and two were hit, neither fatally.
Officials say in exchange for a plea deal, the state dropped the terrorism charge. The pair will be sentenced June 5th.
The state is recommending a 50 year sentence for both.
They also face charges in Bremer County in connection with the police chase.
