Convicted Man Sentenced In Bank Robbery, Police Shootout
FRANKLINTON, La. (AP) — A Covington man convicted of robbing a Washington Parish bank and getting into a shootout with police had 10 years added to his 65-year sentence after a state judge found him to be a habitual offender.
The Times-Picayune reports Logan Mills now will serve 75 years on armed robbery, armed robbery with a firearm, aggravated obstruction of a highway and two attempted murder of a police officer charges.
Mills and Walter Roy Aswell III were accused of stealing a Jeep near Mandeville on April 20, 2011, and driving to a Bogalusa bank. Prosecutors said the two demanded money and fled with $18,000 and police in pursuit. Shots were fired during the chase.
Aswell pleaded guilty to several charges and was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Aug. 21.
