Woodland bank robber sentenced

By February 24, 2011

A Yolo Superior Court judge sentenced a man to 27 years to life in prison Thursday for his role in a Woodland bank robbery last year.

Leighton Dupree was convicted in October of second-degree robbery for the Jan. 12, 2010, heist at North Valley Bank in Woodland. Prosecutors said Dupree approached the teller and said, “I’m not trying to ruin your day, but this is a bank robbery.”

Dupree fled with $373 in cash before being arrested a short distance away.

In addition to convicting Dupree of the robbery charge, the jury found that Dupree had committed two prior serious felonies, resulting in the 27-year-to-life sentence by Judge Janet Gaard, District Attorney Jeff Reisig said.
