YORK, Neb. — An additional charge of felony theft has been filed against Hannah Sabata, 20, of Stromsburg, who is accused of robbing the Cornerstone Bank branch in Waco.
Sabata's arraignment had been scheduled for Monday but was continued because of the unplanned absence of Judge Alan Gless.
Because a judge was not present, no official arraignments could take place. Sabata did sign a written plea of not guilty to the first two charges — robbery and felony theft.
However, that document did not apply to all three charges, so it was not considered a completed written plea.
Sabata was arrested the day after the bank robbery after surveillance photos released to the public prompted numerous tips.
A few days later, an online video surfaced that appears to have been created by Sabata sometime between the time of the bank robbery and her arrest. She is shown wearing the same clothes as the robber and what she was wearing at the time of her arrest,
Using subtitles, she brags about robbing a bank, stealing a shiny car and “having the best day of her life.”
Investigators said they found nearly all the stolen money in Sabata's residence.— World-Herald News Service
