FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - A man who became known for wearing a fake beard while robbing banks in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma is to serve a little more than 11 years in federal prison.
A U.S. District judge on Tuesday sentenced 39-year-old Jason Day of Tulsa, Okla., to 135 months in prison for nine robbery-related charges.
Day was arrested shortly after the robbery of a bank in Fort Smith in August. He pleaded guilty to multiple counts in February.
Day was ordered to pay $70,500 in restitution and be on probation for five years. Prosecutors say Day robbed the banks from June through August 2011. Besides Fort Smith, the banks were in Oklahoma City; Shawnee, Okla., Olathe, Kan.; and Joplin, Mo.
Federal public defender James Pierce didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
