COQUILLE - Bradley Monical was sentenced this morning to 22 years in prison on charges stemming from the April 29 robbery of Sterling Savings Bank in Coos Bay.

A jury convicted the 41-year-old Monical on May 30 of two counts of first degree robbery, 11 counts of unlawful use of a weapon, two counts of aggravated theft and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

At the trial, bank tellers testified Monical entered the bank with a gun, demanded money from the tellers and manager, and left.

A bank employee followed Monical, who was soon arrested by Coos Bay police.

Monical, who was represented by attorney Allen Goldman, denied robbing the bank. He said a man ran into him near the bank and dropped a bag of money in his lap.

Monical, of Hood River, also is the subject of an FBI investigation of a Salem bank robbery and possibly others, according to Coos County District Attorney R. Paul Frasier.
