CHEYENNE, Wyoming — One of three men accused of conspiring to rob a bank in the small southeastern Wyoming town of Burns has struck a plea deal with prosecutors.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports ( ) Derick Gifford has pleaded no contest to conspiring to commit simple robbery.

Co-defendants Cory Dysart and William McCurdy already have pleaded guilty. Dysart was sentenced to five to six years in prison after he pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. McCurdy was sentenced to three to five years on a lesser charge of conspiring to commit burglary.

According to court documents, the men headed for Burns in a stolen truck with three firearms Jan. 31. The bank's doors were locked when they arrived, so they aborted the robbery.
