Judge Sentences Bank Robber To Prison

The serial bank robber known as the 'Man in Black' is headed to prison.

51-year-old Mark Wetsch held up 31 Minnesota banks in 2011 and 2012.  His final crime happened in KELOLAND.

Just a day after holding up the Rolling Hills Bank in Brewster, authorities caught up with Wetsch in St. Peter and made an arrest.

He pleaded guilty to six robberies, but as part of a plea agreement he acknowledged he also committed 25 other crimes.

On Monday, a judge sentenced him to 14 years in prison.
