— An Oklahoma City man, who was convicted in the November 1988 robbery of a Topeka savings and loan and suspected of robbing a Lawrence bank, has been sentenced to prison, according to a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent.

Scott Allen Wilson, 20, was sentenced last month in U.S. District Court to two years and nine months in prison, followed by three years probation, Special Agent Max Geiman of the FBI's Kansas City, Mo., office said Monday. Wilson was convicted of robbing the Capitol Federal Savings and Loan on Nov. 28, 1988.

Wilson also has been sentenced on convictions for separate bank robberies in Oklahoma City and Denver, Geiman said.

Wilson's sentence for the Nov. 23, 1988, robbery of an Oklahoma City savings and loan also two years and nine months in prison is to run concurrently with the sentence for the Topeka robbery, the FBI agent said.

The sentence for the Denver robbery three years and nine months in prison, followed by five years probation cannot run at the same time as the sentences for the Topeka and Oklahoma City robberies.

Wilson also was ordered to pay restitution of $3,718.11 for the Denver robbery, Geiman said.

Wilson was arrested in Topeka on Dec. 20, 1988, on a federal warrant charging him with the Dec. 18, 1988, robbery of a Denver savings and loan.

Authorities said Wilson also was responsible for an attempted robbery Dec. 6, 1988, at the Douglas County Bank, Ninth and Kentucky.

In that robbery, police said, Wilson told bank employees that he had a bomb. Wilson, who was holding a box, demanded money but left before taking anything.
