Columbia man sentenced to 10 years on bank robbery charges

A judge sentenced a Columbia man to 10 years in prison Monday in connection to a bank robbery.

22-year-old Jeremy Burnett appeared in court Monday in St. Louis for sentencing.

The robbery happened on August 22, 2014 at the Bank Midwest in Randolph County.

According to court records, Burnett has been convicted on a dozen other charges.

In October 2012, police said Burnett turned himself in and confessed to robbing three Columbia businesses the month before. Police said surveillance video connected him to all three. And he later pleaded guilty to the robberies in court.

A judge sentenced him to ten years in prison for those robberies. About a year later, he was released on probation after completing a long-term drug treatment last July. That was exactly a month before the Bank Midwest robbery in Moberly.

Last September, a warrant was also issued for Burnett for violating his probation.

Co-defendant Daniel Rudroff was also sentenced to six and a half years in prison back in September 2015.Co-defendantClarence Williams was sentenced to nearly eight years in prison back on August 17 .
