Former Minneapolis Cop Gets 8 Years for Bank Robbery

A former Minneapolis police officer and military veteran who served in Iraq was sentenced Monday to eight years in prison for robbing an Apple Valley bank.

U.S. District Judge Patrick J. Schiltz sentenced Timothy Edward Carson, 29, of Rosemount, to 96 months in prison on one count of armed bank robbery and one count of possessing a firearm for use during a violent crime. Carson was indicted Feb. 2 and pleaded guilty a month later.

After the sentencing, U.S. Attorney B. Todd Jones said that "when police officers break the law, it shakes public confidence and trust in ways we cannot measure. Today's sentence makes clear that no one is above the law."

Minneapolis Police Chief Timothy Dolan added, "Officer Carson's actions hurt many, including his victims, family and those of us who wear a badge. ... I hope that Tim Carson can get the help he needs to become a productive citizen."
