Kevin Don Sinquefield, who entered the plea before Judge Jack Skeen Jr., did not have a special arrangement with prosecutors prior to the plea and received a life sentence for the second-degree felony, prosecutor Jason Parrish said. That life sentence was the highest Sinquefield could have received, Parrish said.
“He won’t begin serving his life sentence until 2018,” Parrish said. Sinquefield may be eligible for parole in 20 years, he said, because the robbery charge did not involve a weapon.
On Oct. 19, Sinquefield robbed the Austin Bank at 5515 Old Bullard Road of $3,000 by passing a note to the teller, Parrish said. Department of Public Safety Officers pursued and caught Sinquefield on Interstate 20.
