(KSL News) Kylee Rich, of Utah County's bank-robbing Bonnie-and-Clyde-type duo, is sentenced to one year in federal prison.
She was sentenced in Salt Lake City's federal court yesterday.
Police say Rich drove the getaway vehicle when her husband, Joshua Rich, and another man robbed a Lindon bank. The couple used the money to fund trips and a heroin addiction.
Joshua Rich faces 32 years in prison.
During her sentencing hearing, Kylee Rich's attorney argued that she was an immature, impressionable person who was talked into the robberies by her husband.
Her parents spoke in court and describing their daughter as a troubled young woman who tends to do what people tell her to do.
The family also said they turned to the "Dr. Phil" television show for help getting counseling for their daughter. The episode will likely be broadcast sometime this fall.
