A New Middletown Man has been sentenced to 84 months in prison after pleading guilty to robbing a Premier Bank on Kirk Road in April of 2021.

Robert Porter was sentenced to 84 months in the Bureau of Prisons followed by three years of supervised release.

Back in April of 2021, Porter entered the bank passing a note to an employee that simply read "this is a robbery." The employee emptied the cash door containing roughly $5,000 that Porter left with.

Porter originally pleaded not guilty to his charges, but changed to a guilty plea in January.
