A Cincinnati man was sentenced Monday to 115 months in prison for robbing two banks in Northern Kentucky.
Nicholas Martin, 29, pleaded guilty in April to federal charges that he took $700 from Citizens Bank in Highland Heights on June 21, 2010, during a robbery in which he claimed to have a gun. Two days later, Martin took about $1,700 from a Fifth Third Bank in Bellevue, saying during that robbery that he had a bomb, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Martin must serve 85 percent of the prison sentence and will be under supervised release for three years after he completes his sentence. He also must pay restitution to the banks, the U.S. attorney's office said.
Martin's criminal history includes six prior convictions for misdemeanor theft, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
