FORT DODGE (AP) — A Nebraska man is facing up to 10 years in federal prison for helping another man rob a bank in Fort Dodge earlier this year.

U.S. Attorney Sean Berry says 26-year-old Christopher Anderson pleaded guilty to being an accessory to bank robbery.

Prosecutors say Anderson drove another man to a location near the bank in Fort Dodge on Feb. 7. When that man returned to Anderson’s car, he was holding a bag and urged Anderson to drive fast.

Anderson drove the other man to Omaha, Neb., to help him elude authorities. Anderson was given $1,000 for his help.

Anderson, of Omaha, could be sentenced to a maximum of 10 years in prison and five years of supervised release. He could also face a fine up to $125,000.
