0 7

A Kansas City man was sentenced Thursday to 12 years and seven months in federal prison for the March robbery of a bank inside Truman Medical Center.

At first, Jimmy Lee Bozeman got away with $1,450 in the hold-up of the U.S. Bank. He was soon identified as the suspect when the FBI released an image taken from a surveillance camera showing the robber.


Among those interviewed by FBI agents investigating the robbery were Bozeman’s former wife and the woman he was married to at the time, but who is now also a former wife.

Both women identified Bozeman as the robber pictured in the surveillance photo.

His estranged wife at the time also told agents that she had bought him the jacket he wore during the hold-up.

Several hospital employees recognized Bozeman as a former patient and also gave his name to the FBI.

Bozeman, 57, pleaded guilty in June.

It was his second bank robbery conviction.

He was previously convicted for the 2009 robbery of a bank in Independence. He was released from custody in May 2014, according to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.
