By WSIL Manager

MT. VERNON -- A Jefferson County woman has been sentenced to four years in prison for her role in the robbery of a Mt. Vernon credit union.

Jessica Wilson pled guilty Tuesday to one count of financial institution robbery, a class 1 felony.

Wilson, 31, of Waltonville, was charged in connection with the December 10, 2012 robbery of the Jefferson County Schools Credit Union.

Wilson's husband, Jeffrey Wilson, and her sister, Amy Ramsey, were also charged in the crime.

Jefferson County State's Attorney Doug Hoffman says Ramsey was the one to enter the credit union, while Jeffrey Wilson acted as a lookout and Jessica Wilson drove the truck.

Both Jeffrey Wilson and Ramsey previously pled guilty and were sentenced to 12 years and 8 years in prison, respectively.

In addition to her four-year prison sentence, Jessica Wilson was also ordered to serve two years of parole and pay $5,000 toward restitution and court costs.
