January 09, 2007

BALTIMORE - A 33-year-old Hagerstown man was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison for robbing a bank in Hagerstown, the U.S. Department of Justice said Monday.

Jerry Jenkins took three bundles of $1,000 from Fidelity Bank on Virginia Avenue on March 11, 2004, the U.S. Department of Justice said. Jenkins gave $100 to a friend to pay off a debt, and he used some of the other money to buy crack. He was arrested a few days later, the U.S. Department of Justice said.

Based on his prior conviction, Jenkins was found to be an armed career criminal, the U.S. Department of Justice said. Chief U.S. District Judge Benson E. Legg sentenced Jenkins to 210 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release, and ordered Jenkins to pay $3,000 in restitution.
