An understandable but seriously misguided attempt to better his daughter’s life has one Michigan father behind bars with no hope in sight.

Brian Randolph, 23, is accused of robbing a bank in order to pay for his one-year-old child’s chemotherapy treatments after the insurance went kaput.

“He just asked me, when am I gonna get out of here. I said you may not get out of here,” says Karri Mitchell, Randolph’s attorney.

Randolph was arrested August 14th, two days after police say he robbed a Vibe Credit Union in South Lyon.

His one year old daughter’s insurance was abruptly canceled, and with no money, his family says the desperate father tried robbing a bank.

His girlfriend tells 7 Action News, “I’m not sure what he was thinking at that point, but at the end of the day the only thing I can think about is him trying to take care of his child.”

Brailynn Randolph goes to chemo every four weeks, as she battles retinoblastoma, a form of eye cancer.

Police say surveillance photos show Randolph giving the teller a note, also indicating he had a gun on August 12th, but never showed one.

His aunt tells us, “The only thing he kept telling me is I want to be the man I’m supposed to be. I want to provide for my child.”

Brian’s fate may be sealed but Brailynn has a GoFundMe page started for her cause.
