GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - A Grand Island woman has been sentenced for one of two robberies she and husband were arrested for in January.

Angela Kresser, 52, was sentenced to probation for 24 months on one count of attempted accessory to a robbery. This comes after she pleaded no contest in Hall County District Court in October.

Kresser was charged in connection with a Dec. 29, 2020, convenience store robbery in Grand Island. She was originally charged with aiding and abetting robbery and use of a firearm to commit a felony. She pleaded no contest to the lesser charge as part of a plea agreement.

Some of her conditions of probation include no contact with her husband, Jeremiah Kresser. She must be gainfully employed or actively seeking employment and she can’t possess alcoholic liquor or controlled substances without a prescription.

 

Her husband Jeremiah Kresser is charged with robbery and use of a firearm to commit a felony. He is going to be arraigned in Hall County District Court on January 4, 2022. He could get up to 100 years in prison if convicted of both crimes.

Both were also connected to a Dec. 30 robbery at a convenience store in Kearney. 

Angela Kresser was convicted of attempted accessory to a felony and was sentenced earlier this month to one year in jail in connection with that robbery.

Jeremiah Kresser was convicted of robbery in connection with the Kearney incident and was sentenced to three to eight years in prison.
