Neb. man pleads guilty to helping rob Iowa bank

FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — A Nebraska man is facing up to 10 years in federal prison for helping another man rob Citizen’s State Bank in Fort Dodge earlier this year.

U.S. Attorney Sean Berry says 26-year-old Christopher Anderson pleaded guilty to being an accessory to bank robbery.

Prosecutors say Anderson drove 43-year-old Michael Clayton to a location near the bank in Fort Dodge on Feb. 7. When Clayton returned to Anderson’s car, he was holding a bag and urged Anderson to drive fast.

Anderson drove Clayton to Omaha, Neb., to elude authorities. Anderson was given $1,000 for his help.

Clayton is being held without bail, and he could face up to 20 years in prison. He is scheduled to be tried in August for bank robbery.
