FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A woman accused of robbing a pair of Grand Forks banks within two weeks last fall has been sentenced to nine years in prison.

Forty-year-old Charlene Corona, also known as Charlene Espinoza, was sentenced for two counts of bank robbery.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson also ordered Corona, of Crookston, Minnesota, to serve three years of supervised release and pay nearly $22,000 in restitution.

Authorities say Corona used a knife to rob a Bremer Bank on Sept. 30 and a handgun to hold up the Citizen Community Credit Union on Oct. 12.
