Rochester Man Sentenced To 39 Months On Bank Robbery Charge
CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE: Thomas Hegarty, 21, of Rochester, New Hampshire, was sentenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire for bank robbery, announced United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice. The Court imposed a term of 39 months imprisonment, three years of supervised release, and full restitution to the victim bank.
Hegarty walked into a Bank of America in Rochester, New Hampshire, on January 20, 2015, held an object under his sweatshirt to simulate a weapon, and handed the teller a note demanding money. He then made off with $400 in stolen funds. Surveillance cameras captured images of the robbery and law enforcement quickly identified Hegarty. He was apprehended later that day.
This case was investigated by the Rochester Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Georgiana Konesky.
