Both Sutton and Manning were also charged for a Dec. 4 robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank branch located at 3434 Tidwell in Houston. During this robbery, Sutton placed a firearm to the abdomen of a bank security guard and demanded money from bank tellers while Manning assisted in the robbery. Afterwards, Sutton and Manning fled to the parking lot and attempted to car-jack a sport utility vehicle from a woman and child, during which a gunshot was heard in the parking lot. When Sutton and Manning were unable to drive the sport utility vehicle, the pair turned to a man driving a pickup truck and car-jacked his vehicle. The truck was later found burned a short distance away from the bank.
Sutton pleaded guilty to the charges Feb. 6, 2008. His sentence reflects a total of 360 months for the firearms charges related to the bank robberies (60 and 300, respectively) and 140 months for the bank robbery charges. All terms are to be served consecutively.
Manning pleaded guilty Feb. 20, 2008, and was also sentenced today. He received 123 months (63 months for the bank robbery and 60 months on the related firearms charge), five years of supervised release following completion of that sentence and $7,066 in restitution.
