SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A former San Antonio police officer imprisoned for a bank holdup that was at the time the biggest in San Antonio history is going back to prison.

Jack Weldon Nealy Jr. served more than 8 years of a 15-year prison sentence for the1993 robbery of a Texas Commerce Bank of more than $240,000. Now, the San Antonio Express-News (https://bit.ly/UNU0fn) reports he’s been sentenced to nearly 3½ years in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia sentenced Nealy Thursday but allowed him to remain free on bail until Oct. 15.

Defense attorney Rusty Guyer said police caught Nealy with a gun and a fake U.S. State Department badge while playing “big shot” while driving Mexican notables to a San Antonio dance hall.
