NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man convicted of an armed bank robbery has been sentenced to nearly 12 years in federal prison.

Rahman Fulton, of Randolph, will also have to serve three years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison under the sentence was imposed Monday.

A federal jury had convicted the 35-year-old Fulton in January on bank robbery and weapons charges.

Prosecutors said Fulton robbed a PNC bank branch in Randolph in May 2012. A bank teller slipped a GPS tracking device in with the money she handed over to Fulton, which soon led them to Fulton’s home.

Prosecutors have said Fulton lied to the police about his whereabouts during the robbery and made incriminating statements to his girlfriend and her sister.
