ROCHESTER - A Rochester man was sentenced on Thursday to one and a half to three years in state prison for robbing Rochester's Service Credit Union on South Main Street last November.
The fully negotiated plea deal with Kejuan Williams, 46, no street address given, also includes a six-month sentence - suspended for two years - for disorderly conduct for his disruption at the bank on Nov. 22.
Assistant County Attorney Chelsea Lane said the addition of the latter charge was to keep Williams mindful of a no-contact order that pertains to both Service Credit Union and the teller victimized in the heist.
Lane said while the sentence may seem light to many people, including herself, federal prosecutors in Concord said it was within current guidelines.
She added that mitigating factors in Williams' favor were the fact that he didn't use a weapon and he turned himself in voluntarily to Rochester Police three days after the robbery.
He must also make restitution to Service Credit Union in the amount of $1,385, Lane said.
