TOPEKA, Kan. — A Topeka man who wore a GPS ankle bracelet while serving as a getaway driver for an armed robbery has been sentenced to three years in federal prison.

The Kansas City Star reports that 26-year-old Christopher Bush was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court after pleading guilty in June to aiding and abetting a commercial robbery.

Court records say Bush picked up a co-defendant in February after the other man robbed a store in Topeka. Police found them at another location in the city shortly after the robbery.

Records show Bush was previously convicted in Douglas County on charges of aggravated battery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and attempted aggravated robbery. He was required to wear the GPS monitor as a condition of his prison release.
