Starkville Daily News - - AROUND TOWN -

He never dis­played a weapon which is the rea­son he nor Wil­liams were charged with armed rob­bery.

The max­i­mum sen­tence for rob­bery is 15 years. Lamb was given that with five years sus­pended, leav­ing the 10 to serve.

In Feb­ru­ary, he ap­plied for pa­role, not­ing that with

earned cred­its, he'd served more than three years and had com­pleted Lifeskills and anger man­age­ment cour­ses in prison. His re­quest was re­jected.

In vic­tim's im­pact state­ments filed at he time of his plea, the two tell­ers who were in the bank said al­though no weapon was used and no on was in­jured, they re­main rat­tled by the in­ci­dent.

"I still dream about this.

I am afraid to work in a teller's win­dow with­out oth­ers around," one wrote, not­ing she is sus­pi­cious of peo­ple wear­ing hats or with back­backs in the bank and out in pub­lic. "Ev­ery­one in­volved will never be rid of the emo­tional pain and scar­ring this man left on us."

"I feel like he has taken things away from me such as my se­cu­rity, trust, feel­ing safe," the other one wrote.
