Leonard Duane Sisk, age 55, of Cecilia, in Hardin County, Kentucky, was sentenced to 33 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release and ordered to pay a $100 fine. Justin Matthew Collinge, age 33, of Leitchfield, in Grayson County, Kentucky, was sentenced to 30 months in prison, followed by a three year period of supervised release and ordered to pay a $100 fine. They were both ordered to pay restitution. Sisk was ordered jointly and severally liable for the full stolen amount of $8,815.00 and Collinge was ordered jointly and severally liable for half the stolen cash in the amount of $4,407.00.

Both defendants pleaded guilty to the single charge of bank robbery by force or violence on June 26, 2015 in U.S. District Court. Both defendants remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.

According to the plea agreements, on December 23, 2014, defendant Sisk, knowingly aided and abetted by defendant Collinge, who acted as the getaway driver, robbed the West Point Bank. Sisk admitted to wearing a disguise while inside the bank, to demanding money from the teller, and to pointing a toy pistol at the teller which was painted black. The teller handed Sisk $8,815.00. Collinge admitted to driving a vehicle provided by Sisk, to the bank and to waiting for the robbery to occur, before acting as the getaway driver subsequent to the robbery.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Randy Ream and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with assistance from the Kentucky State Police.
