SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Prosecutors say a West Valley City man has been sentenced to more than six years in federal prison for robbing banks in Ogden and North Salt Lake. They say 42-year-old Sean Thomas Moore pleaded guilty in February to one count of bank robbery by force or violence. In return for his plea, one count of the same charge was dropped. Moore was sentenced to serve 77 months in prison. The court recommended Moore serve his prison time at the U.S. Penitentiary in Tucson, Arizona.
