LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a Chicago man to over 17 years in prison for robbing a Kearney credit union.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Kopf sentenced 29-year-old Patrick Wigley on Friday to 17 years and six months in prison for the October robbery of the Kearney Eaton Employees Union.

A co-defendant, 27-year-old Thomas Dunlap, was sentenced last month to a little over 11 years for his involvement.

The men were ordered to pay restitution of $122,891.

A third defendant, 28-year-old Clifton Hudson, is awaiting trial.

U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says Dunlap and Wrigley entered the credit union on Oct. 17 and Dunlap pulled out a handgun. The men gathered employees into an office and bound their hands with zip ties. They took over $120,000 from a teller’s drawer and vault.
