Arlo Tratz robbed the Brokaw Credit Union back in December in 2003. He pleaded no contest Wednesday to armed robbery. Two charges of possession of a bullet proof vest and stealing a vehicle were dismissed.
Tratz was sentenced to 39 years in prison, which will include 24 years behind bars and 15 years of extended supervision. Victims of the robbery say the sentencing means closure.
"We've been through this like family and we're just glad that today has come and gone and we can move on," says Mary Zillman, Brokaw Credit Union Vice President.
When given a chance to apologize to the credit union employees, Tratz remained silent.
