Rochester man sentenced to 39 months for bank robbery
ROCHESTER - A Rochester man has been sentenced to more than 3 years in prison for robbing a Bank of America in January of last year.
U.S. Attorney Emily Gray Rice said Thomas Hegarty, 21, faces 39 months in prison, must pay full restitution and will be subject to three years of supervised release after he finishes his prison term.
Hegarty was convicted of walking into a Bank of America in Rochester on Jan. 20, 2015, holding an object under his sweatshirt to simulate a weapon and demanding money from a teller. He fled with roughly $400 but was quickly identified through surveillance video and was arrested later that same day.
