Litchfield Man Pleads Guilty to Robbing Fargo Bank in April
FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Litchfield man has pleaded guilty in federal court to robbing a Fargo bank in April.
Authorities say Jeremy Fahleen, of Litchfield, entered the Gate City Bank and handed a clerk a threatening note demanding money. Fahleen fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was arrested the next day in St. Cloud.
Sentencing for the 34-year-old Fahleen is set for Feb. 25. He faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. Prosecutors are asking that he pay back about $4,000 that was not recovered from the robbery.
A federal public defender could not be reached for comment.
