U.S. Attorney Joe Kelly announced Friday that Kiana Stabler, the final member of a conspiracy group that robbed six banks last year, was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment.
The five defendants worked together to rob the six banks in Lincoln. Kelley said all five pled guilty to a conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, a crime punishable by up to 20 years imprisonment, plus three years of supervised release.
The defendants were sentenced as follows:
• Julian Huffman, who was a getaway driver for one bank robbery while still on parole in Missouri, was sentenced to 5 years in prison.
• Kaylene Stabler, who entered one of the banks and brandished a pellet gun, was also sentenced to 5 years in prison.
• Crystal Stabler, who was a getaway driver for two robberies, was sentenced to 4 months in prison.
• Kiana Stabler, who entered three banks, used pepper spray on a victim and caused bodily injury to multiple victims inside one bank, was sentenced to 7 years in prison.
• Israel Holmes, who committed six bank robberies as part of the conspiracy and entered each bank, brandished dangerous weapons, and made threats to employees and customers of the banks, was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Kelly said all of the defendants were ordered to make full restitution to the victims – totaling more than $85,000, according to news reports.
This case was jointly investigated by the Lincoln Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
