PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A suburban Portland man says he was so moved by a documentary exploring the cause of the Great Recession that he decided to rob a bank.
But apparently the film didn't make enough of an impression for the 50-year-old Gresham man to keep the loot.
The Oregonian ( http://is.gd/g9xtwS) reports that Raymond Carl Knudson pleaded guilty Monday to sticking up a Bank of America branch in April, a crime he confessed within minutes of committing.
According to court documents, Knudson entered the bank and handed over a robbery note. Then he drove to the Gresham Police Department carrying all $425 of the loot and confessed.
He told investigators he felt compelled to rob the bank after watching "Inside Job."
He's scheduled for sentencing Sept. 10.
