Bragging Bank Robber Sentenced

CREATED Jun. 17, 2013

 YORK, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska woman who made a video in which she gleefully described robbing a bank has been given 10 to 20 years in prison.

Twenty-year-old Hannah Sabata, of Stromsburg, was sentenced on Monday in York County District Court. In May she'd pleaded guilty to robbery after a charge of theft was dismissed. She'd been charged with stealing a car to use for the robbery on Nov. 27 at the Waco branch of Cornerstone Bank.
After the robbery, Sabata recorded a video in which she displayed cash and bragged about stealing a car and robbing a bank. She spoke of having the best day of her life.
She posted the video to the Internet site YouTube.
