SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a New York man to serve more than 13 years in prison after a jury convicted him of conspiring with others to commit an armed robbery of a Pennsylvania bank in November 2014.

Jemel “Melo” King had been indicted in May 2015 for charges related to a bank robbery in Scranton. About $111,000 was stolen.

The 38-year-old King was found guilty of armed bank robbery-related charges in April and was sentenced on Tuesday. He must also serve three years of post-release probation.

Two other men have also pleaded guilty in the heist and await sentencing.
