Hopkins bank robber plea deal rescinded
The Star Tribune reported Thursday that a plea deal for a Hopkins bank robber was rescinded because a victim of the robbery objected to the terms.
A former Hopkins basketball player, Anthony DiLoreto, alledgedly drove his 16-year-old friend to a bank to rob it and waited in his car.
DiLoreto got scared and drove back to his Minetonka home, leaving his friend at the bank.
The 16-year-old told police that the gun he used to rob the bank belonged to DiLoretto.
The plea deal offerred to DiLoretto would have made him guilty of misdemeanor charges and serve local jail time, but would not have been felony charges.
The bank's manager protested the agreement because of the fact that he would face no felony charges.
DiLoretto is scheduled to appear in court in February.
