SIOUX CITY, Iowa — A judge has scheduled hearings to reconsider sentences given to two women who pleaded guilty in connection to a staged bank robbery in Sioux City.
The Sioux City Journal (http://bit.ly/1STEObl ) reports that the judge has scheduled hearings for Tuesday in which he will decide whether he will amend the sentences he gave to 19-year-old Heaven Zevenbergen and 19-year-old Angelica Perez.
Zevenbergen and Perez both pleaded guilty to second-degree theft. They were each sentenced to five years in prison in February.
Prosecutors said Perez entered a Security National Bank branch at a Hy-Vee supermarket last August in a disguise, and warned Zevenbergen via a note that she was armed. According to prosecutors, Zevenbergen, then a teller at the bank, knew Perez and gave her $10,000.
