He pleaded guilty to robbing two banks at gunpoint.

Now, a year later 41-year old Ralph Cain is going to prison.

He was running around Garrard and Pulaski Counties in early 2006 robbing banks.

He 's now holed up in a prison cell for the next 18 years.

First, it was the BB&T in Somerset where Ralph Cain got away with more than 2300 dollars.

A week later, he took more than 5,000 at gunpoint from the Kentucky Federal Savings Bank in Garrard County.

Cain's girlfriend was also his serial getaway driver.

Jessica Herren pleaded guilty last month and was sentenced to 10 years.

After their second bank robbery, the two led Lancaster Police on a high speed chase that ended after they threw some of the money they stole out of the window of their car and even over a bridge.

Some drivers along the road were stopping to pick up the money.

Cain must serve at least 15 years in prison, before he can be released.

Cain was originally from Jeffersonville, Indiana, but came to the area with his girlfriend who was from Louisville.
