Guilty Plea in Maynard Bank Robbery and Officer Shooting
(Courtesy: WCF Courier Oct. 30, 2012)
WEST UNION (CBS 2/FOX 28) - Two men accused of robbing a Maynard bank and then shooting two law enforcement officers while trying to get away have pleaded guilty to all charges.
The Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier says 25-year old Jeremian Mumford of New Hampton and 19 year old William Clayton appeared in the Fayette County courthouse Monday afternoon to enter guilty please to charges of first-degree robbery and two counts of attempted murder.
The plea agreement, which could mean as much as 50-years in prison for each man, was a dramatic reduction from the charges the pair first faced. When initially charged in Fayette and Bremer Counties the duo were also charged with terrorism and as many as 13-counts of attempted murder.
The Fayette County charges will run concurrent to similar charges in Bremer County, 35 counts of which have yet to be adjudicated.
The incident stems from the October 30, 2012 robbery of the Maynard Savings Bank, a 25-mile long high speed chase in which Sumner Police Chief Dennis Cain and Iowa State Patrol Trooper Mark Domino were shot, Cain severely.
The chase ended in a hours-long standoff at a rock quarry outside Frederika.
