    Good point mike, except you forgot slick rick lawyers, plea bargains, consolidated sentencing, and a full prison system. I would say that he is in for some serious time, however I doubt he ever has to see 70 years mandatory time.

    Great job AMW and police agencies! 10 counts of bank robbery at 20 years each to run consecutively makes this guy very old upon release. The minimum time served is 7 years each.
