ROBBER SAID SHE NEEDED FUNDS FOR CHILD SUPPORT SO SHE COULD SEE KIDS

A woman who pleaded guilty to robbing a bank said she did it to pay her ex-husband nearly $7,000 in overdue child support and see her four young children again.

Lana D. Clark, 35, and her current husband, Randolph C. Clark, pleaded guilty Friday to the robbery in November in the small town of Tightwad, 70 miles southeast of Kansas City. Both also pleaded guilty to using guns.No sentencing date was set immediately.

Clark, a truck driver from New Boston, Texas, told the FBI that her former husband, who is on welfare, has custody of the children and would not let her see them until she paid $6,800 in overdue child support - in cash.
