Husband & Wife Sentenced for Bank Robberies

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A husband and wife from Williamsburg, Kentucky, are now behind bars for robbing several banks in eastern Kentucky and Tennessee.

A U.S. District Judge sentenced Jason Fox, 32, to 20 years Thursday, for seven separate counts of bank robbery and armed bank robbery.

His wife, Tasha Fox, 28, was sentenced to 10 years for aiding and abetting.

Both will be on supervised release for five years, after they serve their prison sentence.

Jason Fox has also been ordered to pay over $80,000.

Earlier this year, he admitted to robbing seven banks in 2011.

He said he had a semi-automatic handgun with him at five of the robberies.

In four of the bank robberies, Tasha drove the getaway car for her husband.
