(WIBW) - A Leavenworth man will spend more than 11 years behind bars for his role in a bank robbery and chase.

34-year old Isha Jackson was sentenced Wednesday to 142 months in federal prison.

Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of armed bank robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during the robbery.

According to court documents, on Sept. 21, 2009, Jackson entered Wachovia Bank at 12000 West 95th in Lenexa, Kan., pointed a Smith & Wesson .38 Special revolver at tellers and demanded money.

Police responding to bank’s alarm spotted Jackson’s car and pursued him. Jackson led police on a high speed chase until he crashed the car near 87th street.

In addition to the prison sentence, Jackson was ordered to pay more than $13,000 in restitution for damage to a car he struck during the chase and damage to the Enterprise rental car he was driving.
