A man sentenced earlier this year for his roles in Washington County bank robberies officially had his probation revoked in a St. Francois County stealing case.
Circuit Court Judge Sandy Martinez sentenced Larry Wayne Ham, 48, whose last known address was in Hillsboro, to seven years in prison for violating the probation he received in 2011 for stealing. The sentence will run concurrent to his robbery sentences, for a total of 17 years in prison.
Ham was arrested in connection with the robbery of Unico Bank in Irondale which occurred on March 21, 2014, and another robbery at the same bank on Dec. 31, 2009.
In other cases, David Fingers, 45, of Park Hills, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for three counts of second-degree statutory sodomy.
According to court records, a boy under the age of 15 told police Fingers forced him to engage in sexual activities five times in St. Francois County and three times in Washington County.
When questioned, Fingers initially denied the allegations, saying he has diabetes and as a result, has no sexual desires. After being told that wasn’t a believable story, Fingers told the officer that he and the boy only measured each other’s genitals.
When asked what that had to do with the allegations, Fingers bowed his head and admitted that they engaged in sexual activity. He then admitted that it happened a total of eight times.
