Jan. 19, 2018
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City man has been sentenced for 14 years in federal prison without parole for an armed bank robbery he committed while on parole for a murder conviction.
Federal prosecutors say 59-year-old Gregory Burgin was sentenced Thursday for a robbery in March 2016 at a Bank Midwest in Kansas City. He pleaded guilty in July.
Prosecutors say Burgin and another man pointed handguns at tellers and customers and fled with about $8,000.
In October 1980, Burgin was found guilty of second-degree murder and sentenced to 50 years after a woman's shooting death in Jackson County. He was released on parole in November 2004 but his parole was revoked in May 2007. He was released on parole again in May 2009 but a parole violation warrant was issued in March 2016.
