(KSL News) Joshua Rich said he wanted to back out of a plea deal he made with federal prosecutors because he claims an "air gun" was used in two of the armed robberies with which he's charged.

A federal prosecutor says Rich made the same claim months ago but then pleaded guilty to the indictment, which says a .22-caliber gun was used.

The difference could determine if Rich spends a mandatory 32 years in prison. Rich is accused of robbing a Lindon bank three different times.

His wife, Kylee, and a friend, Roland Thompson, also were charged with bank robbery.
