Court Upholds Conviction in Marion Bank Robbery

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A federal appeals panel says a judge was correct to allow prosecutors to ask a woman charged as an accessory to a Marion bank robbery about three other robberies an accomplice confessed to before he killed himself in jail.

Shari Ann Tucker of Powhatan Point, Ohio, was convicted in federal court of being an accessory after the fact in a 2004 robbery of the First Community Bank of Eastern Arkansas in Marion.  She was sentenced to 33 months in prison.  Prosecutors say Tucker drove the getaway vehicle and that Perry Robson robbed the bank, handing a note to a teller saying he had a gun.  He fled with $13,000.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says there was enough evidence to show that Tucker was aware Robson had robbed the bank.  According to the opinion, Robson was dropping cash as he ran out of the bank, and that his note was found inside Tucker's purse.
