WALLACE, Neb. -- A man from Wallace was convicted on Friday for an armed bank robbery in Gothenburg.

Acting U.S. Attorney Steve Russell said 27-year-old Wesley Cassidy, of Wallace, was sentenced in Lincoln on Friday for armed bank robbery. Cassidy will serve 50 months in prison with a five-year term of supervised release after, and a $100 special assessment fee. There is no parole in the federal system.

According to court documents, Cassidy entered Flatwater Bank in Gothenburg, and demanded money from a bank teller using a bladed knife on Aug. 19, 2021. The teller gave Cassidy money from two teller drawers and he left the bank with the money on foot. He was taken into custody shortly after and later admitted to robbing the bank during an interview.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
