WICHITA – Kansas man pleaded guilty Tuesday of brandishing or aiding and abetting another robber who brandished a firearm during a bank robbery, according to U.S. Attorney Tom Beall.
Andre Bryant, 30, Wichita, pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting or brandishing a firearm in a crime of violence.
In his plea, he admitted that on June 13, 2016, he and co-defendants robbed the Carson Bank at 4461 E. Douglas in Wichita.
Two individuals who were disguised entered the bank, one of them brandishing a firearm. They demanded and received money before fleeing. The money they received contained a global positioning device that police used to track Bryant and the co-defendants and arrest them.
Bryant is set for sentencing April 10. Both parties have agreed to recommend a sentence of 84 months in federal prison.
