Long Sentence For Bank Robbery Nabbed Through DNA

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - A 24-year-old Michigan man whose DNA was found on masks used in his bank robberies has been sentenced to 60 years, 10 months in prison.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Michael J. Henry was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Detroit.

A jury convicted the former Ann Arbor resident last October of bank robbery and using a firearm during a federal crime of violence.

Trial evidence shows that Henry and two unidentified accomplices robbed banks in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor in 2009, and the same Ann Arbor branch the following year. They stole about $39,000.

Authorities say Henry was caught and convicted partly due to his DNA that was recovered from masks worn during the holdups. His accomplices haven't been caught.
