TIVERTON, R.I. (AP) - A Connecticut man has been sentenced to serve three and a half years of a 10-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to charges he robbed a Rhode Island bank last summer.

Police say 22-year-old Daniel Fernandes of New Britain, Conn., robbed a Bank of Newport branch in Tiverton on Aug. 17.

Police tell The Herald News (https://bit.ly/1ev0HFz ) he walked into the bank shortly after 9 a.m., waited in line and then presented the teller with a note demanding money.

He surrendered to Connecticut State Police on Sept. 5 after Tiverton detectives identified him as a suspect.

He was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison, with all but 42 months suspended.
