TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka man has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for a bank robbery this year.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1QIZWze ) that 27-year-old Kirk Mychale Sexton pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery.

Sexton admitted that he robbed the Equity Bank in southwest Topeka on Jan. 9.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says Sexton entered the bank and handed the clerk a note demanding money.

Sexton left the bank with cash. Police stopped him nearby after they saw red dye from a dye pack on his clothes.
