Man sentenced to 30 years for heist kidnapping tellers
BILOXI, Miss. (9/14/11)--A Mississippi man was sentenced to 30 years in prison in connection with an armed robbery in 2008 at a credit union, in which two tellers were kidnapped. Daniel George Corring, 22, pleaded guilty to one count of armed robbery and two counts of kidnapping in a Circuit Court in Biloxi. The holdup occurred April 18, 2008 at a Waveland branch of Biloxi-based Keesler FCU. About $68,584 was taken in the heist, but the amount was recovered (SunHerald.com Sept. 12). The robber was allegedly armed with several weapons and arrived on foot. He took two tellers hostage and forced them into one teller's car to escape. After a high-speed chase, the card went into a ditch, and Corring was arrested. Neither teller was harmed (News Now April 22, 2008). Circuit Judge John Gargiulo sentenced Corring to 50 years for armed robbery and suspended 20 years of it, as well as 30 years for each count of kidnapping, to run concurrently with the 30-year robbery sentence, said the SunHerald.com.
