ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque man has been sentenced to more than three years in federal prison for acting as a lookout during a bank robbery.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Christian Herrera was sentenced to a 37-month prison term Thursday followed by four years of supervised release.

Herrera and four co-defendants were accused of robbing a US Bank branch in Albuquerque in March 2016.

In February, Herrera pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the armed robbery.

Prosecutors say the other defendants all entered guilty pleas and have been sentenced to prison terms ranging from 37 months to 107 months.
