A federal jury has found a 21-year-old Columbus man guilty in the robbery of a rural Nebraska bank last year.

Russell Frauendorfer was convicted Monday in federal court.

He is set to be sentenced September third for robbing the Bank of Leigh in Creston with his nephew, Aaron Shanle. Frauendorfer faces a minimum of 13 years and a maximum of 37 years in federal prison.

During Frauendorfer's trial, Shanle testified that he and Frauenforfer robbed the Creston bank of $4,700 last year.

Shanle also said Frauendorfer drove the getaway car three weeks later when Shanle robbed the Platte Center bank of about five-thousand dollars. Frauendorfer was acquitted of charges in that robbery.

Shanle is the brother of former Nebraska football player and current Saint Louis Ram Scott Shanle. He was sentenced last month to 12 years in prison for his part in the robberies.
