A Billings man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison after being convicted in a 2018 casino robbery.
Antonio Francisco Gutierrez, 36, was sentenced to 10 years in prison and five years of supervised release and ordered to pay $3,424 in restitution on Thursday, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Montana.
In January, a jury convicted Gutierrez on three counts in the Feb. 5, 2018, robbery at Dotty’s Casino, located across the street from Shiloh Crossing on Billings’ West End.
Christopher Alan Esrey, the getaway driver, admitted charges in July and was sentenced to 15 months in prison and three years of supervised release.
Police found Gutierrez and Esrey roughly an hour after the Dotty’s robbery at another Billings casino, the Gold Dust Casino at 1310 15th St. W.
