JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A Utah man accused of robbing a Jackson bank says he gave the money away to the poor and will offer a “Robin Hood” defense when he goes on trial later month.

Thirty-nine-year-old Corey Allan Donaldson is an Australian citizen who had been living in Sandy until his arrest in late January. Donaldson is accused of taking $147,000 from a U.S. Bank branch on New Year’s Eve.

In a statement sent to the Jackson Hole Daily said he’ll argue that the federal government is “not innocent enough” to prosecute him because it helps foster corruption and greed in the nation’s banks.

Prosecutors say he claimed to have placed explosives around the bank and threatened to detonate them if he didn’t get the money.
He is representing himself.
