Man gets 85 months in prison for robbing Rockford bank


A Rockford man was sentenced to 85 months in federal prison Monday for robbing the BMO Harris Bank in the 1200 block of Bennington Road in July 2010.

In addition to his 85 month sentence, 33-year-old Drew Yancy will have to serve three years of supervised release and pay $5,905 in restitution to the bank. He will not be eligible for parole.

The plea agreement states Yancy was driven to the bank by 27-year-old Prince Williams of Rockford in a stolen car on July 22, 2010. Both men then entered the bank, Williams stood by the front door, and Yancy went up to the tellers and demanded cash. In the plea agreement, Yancy admits to telling a teller he would shoot and kill her if she did not give him any money.

The two men got $5,905 from the tellers and then fled in the car. Williams pled guilty to his involvement in the robbery in April 2012 and will be sentenced at a later date.

Yancy pled guilty in April 2013.
