NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) — A 53-year-old Wyoming man has been given 18 to 36 months in prison for a botched bank robbery in western Nebraska.

Tracy Black was sentenced on Monday. He’d pleaded no contest and was convicted of attempted robbery.

Authorities say Black was the getaway driver in the attempted robbery of Farmers State Bank in Wallace in August. His accomplice, 20-year-old Drew Steier, went into the bank wearing a ski mask and wielding a BB gun. Steier fled without any money and drove away with Black, who was waiting in a pickup outside. They were arrested near Imperial about an hour later.

Steier is scheduled to be sentenced on April 8.

Both men are from Evanston, Wyo.
