County man sentenced for Lenexa bank robbery

April 6, 2010

Isha Jackson, 34, Leavenworth, has been sentenced to more than 11 months in federal prison for robbing a bank in Lenexa, U.S. Attorney Lanny Welch said recently.

Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of armed bank robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during the robbery. According to court documents, on Sept. 21, 2009, Jackson entered Wachovia Bank at 12000 West 95th in Lenexa, pointed a Smith & Wesson .38 Special revolver at tellers and demanded money.

Police responding to the bank’s alarm spotted Jackson’s car and pursued him. Jackson led police on a high-speed chase until he crashed the car near 87th Street. He was ordered to pay more than $13,000 in restitution for damage to a car he struck during the chase and damage to the Enterprise rental car he was driving.

Welch commended the Lenexa Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Assistant U.S. Attorney Leon Patton for their work on the case.
