DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to eight bank robberies in central and southwestern Ohio has been sentenced to nearly eight years in prison.

Thirty-year-old Michael Hay of Columbus pleaded guilty in June to eight counts of bank robbery in robberies that occurred between December 10 and February 4. He was sentenced to 94 months in prison Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Dayton. U.S. District Judge Thomas Rose also ordered Hay to pay more than $34,000 in restitution and to serve three years on supervised release following his prison time.

Prosecutors say Hay robbed banks in Cincinnati and in suburban areas of Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus. He was arrested Feb. 7 by police in the Columbus suburb of Grove City.

A message was left for Hay’s attorney.
