LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas woman has been sentenced to 121 years in federal prison after she was convicted of acting as the getaway driver in a dozen robberies at banks and outlet malls in southern Nevada.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Gordon sentenced 46-year-old Sesley Williams Tuesday on charges stemming from a total of 13 commercial robberies in Las Vegas, Henderson and Primm during 2012-13.
Williams was convicted nearly a year ago of eight counts of bank robbery, five counts of interference with commerce by robbery and five counts of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
A co-defendant, Anthony Jordan, was sentenced last March to 60 years in prison.
The federal crimes carried mandatory sentences.
