Convictions for armed bank robbery and other crimes are reversed and remanded where: 1) the district court abused its discretion in denying defendants' motion for a continuance as the record shows no reason to deny a continuance and several compelling reasons to grant one, and the defendants suffered actual prejudice from the denial; and 2) any error in admitting certain expert evidence was harmless.
