MINNEAPOLIS – A man who robbed three local institutions, including two credit unions, must pay restitution to all three – even though he only pleaded guilty to one of the robberies as part of a plea bargain.

Lawrence Coleman, 41, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the robbery of $1,700 from City County FCU on Oct. 25, 2010.

In exchange for pleading guilty to that crime, charges were dropped against him alleging that he robbed another City County FCU branch on Oct. 26, 2010, of $1,800 and a Citizens Independent Bank branch of $811 two days later.
