SEATTLE (AP) — The two men’s resumes date back to the ‘60s — and bank robberies figure prominently. They’ve often updated their disguises — switching from a Richard Nixon mask to a Hillary Clinton mask, for instance.
In a possible nod to their own advancing years, they’ve used an “elderly man” mask as well.
On Friday, a federal judge in Seattle sentenced the men to 70 years each for a string of bank robberies in the Seattle area.
In March, 66-year-old Jack Sexton and 65-year-old Ronald Kettells were convicted of conspiracy to commit bank robbery, three armed bank robberies and using a firearm during a crime of violence.
Prosecutors told U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik that the crimes were “recklessly violent and directly endangered the lives of numerous victims and responding officers.”
The men were also ordered to pay more than $29,000 in restitution.
