The man who tried to rob the Wells Fargo Bank in downtown Casper in March was sentenced to more than three years imprisonment, according to federal court records.

Jack Taber pleaded guilty in May to attempted bank robbery.

Chief U.S. District Judge Nancy Freudenthal sentenced Taber to 37 months behind bars, according to the sentencing minute document.

Freudenthal also ordered three years of supervised release after his prison term, a mental health evaluation, and placement at a facility had has a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program and is in the Colorado-Wyoming area so his family can visit him.

The federal sentencing range for attempted bank robbery is zero to 20 years imprisonment, according to the criminal complaint.

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.
