Jackson, Wyo. • A Utah man accused of robbing a Jackson, Wyo., bank claims he gave the money away to poor people and intends to mount a "Robin Hood" defense when he goes on trial later this month.

Corey Allan Donaldson, 39, an Australian citizen who was living in Sandy before his arrest, is accused of taking $147,000 from U.S. Bank on New Year's Eve. Police have said $16,000 was found in his possession when he was arrested in late January in Clinton, Utah.

Donaldson is representing himself. The trial starts April 29 in federal court in Cheyenne.
