ABQ bank robber gets long prison sentence

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – A man has been sentenced to nearly 27 years in prison for four armed bank robberies in the Albuquerque area.

Federal prosecutors say 36-year-old James Charles Mollohan of Albuquerque also was sentenced Wednesday to five years of supervised release after his 332-month prison term.

Mollohan was arrested on Feb. 1, 2013. He pleaded guilty five months ago to four counts of armed bank robbery and possession of a firearm in relation to a crime of violence.

In entering his guilty plea, Mollohan admitted robbing at gunpoint a Bank of Albuquerque branch on Jan. 12, 2013 and a New Mexico Bank and Trust branch on Jan. 29, 2013.

He also admitted robbing the New Mexico Educators Federal Credit Union on Jan. 29, 2013 and again on Feb. 1, 2013.
