    Does anyone know why he isn't facing FEDERAL charges??? Bank Robbery is a federal crime since the funds are insured by the FDIC. Sounds like just state charges where he'll probably be released much sooner.

    I just hope that he gets what he deserves and isnt set free to roam and steal from others once again. The only two people in his family that I feel sorry for right now is his grandpa and grandma, they both arent the best bill of health in the world and I think he should've thought about them and his child before he committed such a bad crime. Good Job to the Letcher Co Sheriffs Department and Kentucky State Police and everyone else who was involved in catching the robber. As for bond, I feel that when such a crime is done, there shouldn't be a bond set. But my opinion doesn't really count for much anyways. I also want to let the ladies know that works at this bank, Letcher Countians are so proud of you for being so brave and for your quick thinking, so this guy could be caught. We love you and thank you for being such wonderful women and being nice to everyone and for being so friendly and kind. And I also want to thank WYMT News for keeping us informed.
