'Deadliest Catch' Star Guilty of Bank Robberies

5/13/2010 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One "Deadliest Catch" crew member won't be released back into the wild for 9 years -- because dude was just found guilty of robbing three banks in Oregon.

23-year-old Joshua Tell Warner -- who briefly worked on the F/V Wizard crab boat in 2009 -- pled guilty today in Oregon to three bank robbery charges. Warner admitted to robbing one bank before appearing on the show and two after.

Warner apologized to the numerous bank tellers who were present at his court appearance today -- where he was sentenced to nine years in prison.

And get this: Warner's lawyer says his appearance on "Catch" is was got him caught ... after viewers who recognized him as a suspect in the robberies tipped off police last fall.

Jay Leno loves "dumb criminals" so he's bound to feature this poor slob. And this doofus is somebody's child. Sad for all concerned.

Man, that's too bad. I don't know why kids feel lost like this. He had a really good job. And I agree with Jaime...it's not the Josh you are thinking about...and no matter who it is, he still needs our prayers...obviously he has perril in his heart.

I guess now you'll learn the hard way how to be a team playa!
Three years each for three bank robberies is a gift you don't
deserve. Earn your redemption!
