Trial delayed for alleged getaway car driver
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A woman charged with driving the getaway car in three Franklin County bank robberies last August on Wednesday asked for a continuance of her case to the March trial term.
Rhonda A. Martin, 30, of 13361 Main St., Fort Loudon, Pa., is charged with three counts each of robbery, conspiracy and receiving, according to court records.
Martin was listed for the January trial term, but defense attorney Clint Barkdoll said he needed more time.
"Her co-defendant is being prosecuted federally and there are cases in Cumberland County. We need more time to consolidate the information," Barkdoll said.
Franklin County Court of Common Pleas Judge John Walker granted the request Wednesday.
Martin and co-defendant John W. Blair, 40, of Fort Loudon, are accused of robbing three banks in Franklin County and four in the Carlisle, Pa., area last summer, court records show.
