A 42-year-old Waltonville man has pleaded guilty to bank robbery, in exchange for a sentence of 12 years in prison, which he will begin serving immediately.
According to Jefferson County State’s Attorney Doug Hoffman, Jeffrey M. Wilson pleaded guilty to one count of financial institution robbery and will have three other charges dismissed per the plea agreement.
Wilson robbed Community First Bank of the Heartland on November 27, 2012. He was armed with a gun at that time.
He was also one of three individuals that were charged in the December 10, 2012 robbery at the Jefferson County Schools Credit Union in Mount Vernon. He faced two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of financial institution robbery for that robbery.
His wife, 30-year old Jessica S. Wilson, was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of financial institution robbery for her involvement in the Mount Vernon robbery.
She is scheduled for jury trial later this year. Jessica’s sister, 27-year old Amy Ramsey of Waltonville, was also charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of financial institution robbery for her alleged involvement in the Mount Vernon robbery on December 10th.
She previously pleaded guilty to her involvement in that robbery and was sentenced to 8 years in prison. All three were all picked up on December 11th at various locations through the investigation by the Mount Vernon Police Department, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office and Doug Hoffman’s office. Jeffrey Wilson was ordered to pay $5,000 total to both institutions in restitution. His father made that payment Tuesday.
