SECOND SENTENCE: 50 Years For Bank Robbers
Sentencing was held Wednesday morning in Fayette County for two men who robbed a bank and engaged authorities in a shootout during a chase.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports 19-year-old William Clayton and 25-year-old Jeremiah Mumford were each sentenced to 50 years in prison. The sentencing comes after they were convicted of first degree robbery, attempted murder, and intimidation with a weapon.
Clayton and Mumford robbed a bank in Maynard last October and shot two law enforcement officials trying to apprehend them. Iowa State Trooper Mark Domino was shot in the arm and Sumner Police Chief Dennis Cain was shot in the neck, shoulder, and hand. Both have recovered from their injuries.
The chase ended in Bremer County and earlier this month, Clayton and Mumford were sentenced on charges there related to the incident. Each was sentenced to 75 years in prison.
A plea deal means the sentences will run concurrently. Clayton and Mumford must serve 35 years of the sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
