Jack Taber Pleads Guilty To Attempted Bank Robbery

A Casper man is now admitting that he tried to rob a bank earlier this year.

Jack Taber, has pleaded guilty in federal court, to one count of attempted bank robbery.

Prosecutors say in late March, Taber entered the Wells Fargo Bank at the corner of First and Durbin Street in Casper, and told one teller that he was robbing her, and was watching her, and did not want to hurt her.

He told the teller not to push any alarms and to put the money into a bag.

The teller then told Taber that she did not have a bag and would have to get one from the back room.

Once she got to back room, she alerted another employee who called police.

Taber left without any money, and was spotted a few hours later at the Natrona County Public Library and was taken into custody.

When questioned, he admitted that he was in the bank, and didn’t know why he did it.

Federal prosecutors say under the federal sentencing guidelines, Taber should receive a five-and-one quarter to six and one-half year prison sentence.

Judge Nancy Freudenthal will make an official ruling on sentencing, in late July.

Amy Richards from KGAB in Cheyenne, contributed some to this story.
