'Flip Flop Bandit' sentenced to prison in holdup
EAST ST. LOUIS – A judge ordered a 43-year-old woman to spend four years and three months in federal prison for a southern Illinois bank robbery that earned her the moniker of the "Flip Flop Bandit" for the bright green footwear she wore during the holdup.
Carla Walker of Lebanon was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis. She pleaded guilty in May to one count of bank robbery.
Walker admitted she robbed the First Federal Savings Bank of Lebanon on March 26 after pointing a pellet gun at the bank tellers and insisting other guns were trained on the bank.
