A Utah man accused of robbing a Jackson bank says he gave the money away to the poor and will mount a "Robin Hood" defense.
Thirty-nine-year-old Corey Allan Donaldson, an Australian citizen, is set to go on trial this month in Cheyenne. In a statement sent to the Jackson Hole Daily, Donaldson said he'll argue that the federal government is "not innocent enough" to prosecute him because it helps foster corruption and greed in the nation's banks.
Donaldson is accusing of taking $147,000 from U.S. Bank on New Year's Eve. Prosecutors say he claimed to have placed explosives around the bank and threatened to detonate them if he didn't get the money.
He has been in jail since his arrest in late January and is representing himself.
