Man pointed gun at bank tellers during robbery
BARABOO, Wis. — A Baraboo man was sentenced Thursday to 15 years in prison for armed bank robbery.
Richard B. Hindes, 32, pleaded guilty to the charge in April.
On June 16, 2011, Hindes robbed the Wells Fargo Bank in Baraboo. During the robbery, Hindes pointed a gun at two separate tellers. He then fled in a stolen vehicle and was arrested two days later in a Milwaukee suburb.
In sentencing Hindes to a lengthy prison term, U.S. District Judge William C. Conley noted that Hindes has been committing violent acts for almost half of his life and is a dangerous person.
The charges against Hindes were the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI, Baraboo Police Department and West Allis Police Department.
