Woman Who Says Prison Is Like Home, Robs Bank & Wait To Be Arrested By Police

59-year-old Linda Thompson, a transgender woman on Wednesday pleaded guilty to a robbery charge after police say she pulled off a bank heist in Wyoming just so she could return to prison. 

Thompson told a district court judge in Cheyenne that going back behind bars would be like going home. Sentencing for the woman was set for October 12. 

She was arrested July 27 after a US Bank branch in Cheyenne was robbed by a woman who tossed the money into the air outside and offered some to passers-by. 

Thompson then sat down and waited 
police to arrive and arrest her. 

She was released in June from prison in Oregon, where she had served time on a robbery conviction. Thompson said she unsuccessfully protested her release in Oregon. 

Thompson previously said she had suffered facial fractures after strangers beat her at a Cheyenne park last month. 

She said she couldn't get a room at a homeless shelter and decided to rob the bank last Wednesday because she could no longer stay on the streets, court records say.
