After robbing six banks, including two locally, he’ll spend more than eight years in prison.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says 49-year-old Kenneth Parker of Rockaway Beach must also pay about $22,000 in restitution, under the sentence he received Monday. Parker pleaded guilty to the holdups last year. The local heists were at US Bank in Columbia, and Union Savings Bank in Sedalia, in 2010. His six-week crime spree also included spots in Oregon and Iowa.
