Two southern New Jersey residents who robbed a bank last year to pay for their wedding trip to Las Vegas are now headed to state prison. Twenty-eight-year old Charles B. Koch of Stratford and 27-year-old Cheri Harper of Malaga both received seven-year terms on Friday. They must serve 85 percent of their sentences before becoming eligible for parole.
Isn’t there an old adage about the family that “knocks off a bank together” usually “stays together.” Being in jail for seven years isn’t the best way to start a marriage. It does beat living in New Jersey though.
