BISMARCK — A Kansas man who held up a bank in North Dakota's oil patch and then called police three days later from his home to tell them he had made a mistake has been sentenced to federal prison.

Fifty-three-year-old Kent Clemens, of Topeka, Kan., was sentenced in federal court in Bismarck on Wednesday to serve three years and one month in prison, followed by two years of supervised release. He also was ordered to pay $500 in restitution.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says Clemens entered a Gate City Bank in Williston last July 18 and demanded money from a teller before fleeing on foot. He returned to Topeka and called police three days later. He pleaded guilty to bank robbery last October.
