Bank robbers on their way to prison for decades

WAVERLY – Two bank robbers will be going to prison for decades after pleading guilty to felony charges Monday.

William Clayton, 19, of Osage and Jeremiah Mumford, 25, of New Hampton plead guilty to 30 charges, KWWL TV reported. Both men will spend 75 years in prison.

Mumford was charged with six counts of Attempted Murder (Class B Felony) and five counts of Terrorism (Class B Felony). Clayton was charged with six counts of Aiding and Abetting (Class B Felony) and five counts of Terrorism (Class B Felony).  More charges were added later by authorities.

Law enforcement arrested and charged Clayton and Mumford after a prolonged search in Bremer County, Iowa last October after the robbery, which took place on October 30th.

Two Iowa State Patrol troopers were shot in the pursuit of the two men.

Trooper Mark Domino from the Iowa State Patrol was shot in the arm. He was transported to an area hospital, treated and released. Chief Dennis Cain of the Sumner Police Department was shot in the hand, thumb, and neck.

Both men will serve decades behind bars.

In many states you can kill a man and do less than half that time.

If you listened to what was said in court they have NO chance of getting out for at least 35 years so please get your facts straight and keep your opinions to yourself if you don’t know the facts!

They tried to murder someone, Allen

What they did was stupid, but I guess they got their just punishment. You can murder someone and be out in less time, or do no time at all. The scales of justice don’t seem balanced here.

They’ll probably be out in 7-10 years. If stupidity was illegal, these guys should get the chair!

Only one of them fired shots and that was Mumford! I realize what they did was wrong and the deserve to get punished for it but the chair is a little extreme especially for clayton as he got mixed up with the wrong person and was doing drugs. No that does not excuse his actions completely but it does explain alot and what everyone in this world needs to remember that yes all of the victims are suffering but so is the family of at least William Clayton and I know them personally and they are dieing inside because of all of this but they do not excuse what he did but they will always love him!
