A bank robber from Philadelphia was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Tuesday after he pleaded guilty earlier to robbing Sovereign Bank in Jersey Shore and was convicted in a trial of attempting to rob a bank in Altoona. Both incidents occurred in 2007.
Terrell Carter, 28, who formerly lived in Williamsport, received a 115-month sentence from U.S. Middle District Judge John E. Jones III.
Carter faced a sentence of up to the 20 years in prison, which U.S. Assistant Attorney Bill Simmers was seeking.
Carter served five years in various county prisons awaiting sentencing.
