DOVER, Del. (AP) - Two men convicted in a 2011 bank robbery that resulted in shots fired at police and a motel standoff have been sentenced to lengthy prison terms.
A judge on Thursday sentenced 31-year-old William Sells III to 96 years in prison. Forty-two-year-old Russell Grimes got 64 years.
Both men were sentenced as habitual offenders, meaning they will serve their entire sentences and not be eligible for early release.
The two were convicted in May on multiple charges stemming the armed robbery of a bank in Felton. Grimes was arrested shortly afterward after being shot by a state trooper. Sells eluded authorities for a week before being tracked down at a motel near Dover.
Police negotiated with Sells for several hours before storming the motel room and taking him into custody.
