Lawyer from Missouri Sentenced to 24 Years in Prison for Bank Robbery Spree
Warren J. Gladders, a lawyer and former police officer, has been sentenced to 24 years and five months in prison for a bank robbery spree in 2013, according to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Gladders went on a bank robbery spree in 2013 that concluded with a gunfight with a state trooper from Missouri.

Gladders took responsibility for the crimes, but failed to explain how he went from being a lawyer to a criminal.

Gladders fired four shots at the officer, from the Missouri Highway Patrol, with one of them being stopped by a bullet-proof vest.

Gladder was hit in the leg by return fire.

Gladders is from Wentzville and robbed the First Bank in Dutzow, Warren County on September 20, 2013. His vehicle was seen by the trooper, who pulled him over, which caused the gunfire to erupt.

On August 2, 2013, Gladders robbed the First National Bank in Weldon Spring. He robbed the Reliance Bank in Creve Coeur on July 7, 2013.

Gladders showed a revolver in all of his robberies. His entire pull from the robberies totaled $55,000.

He entered a guilty plea in U.S. District Court back in July of this year to three charges of bank robbery and a charge of using a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

Both the public defender for Gladders and the prosecution agreed that 25 years in prison was an appropriate sentence. The final sentence was reduced due to the time Gladders spent in jail prior to having federal charges filed against him.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Rea said, “This was an unbelievably violent and dangerous act.”

Gladders has also entered a guilty plea in state court and will be sentenced there in November. He could be facing up to 35 years in prison, but the time will likely be concurrent with the federal sentence.

Gladders spent some brief time as a police officer in St. Louis, but was working as a lawyer when the crimes were committed. He graduated from John Burroughs School, Colgate University and the Washington University law school.
