An Ithaca man is sentenced to three and a half years in state prison for robbing a bank.
In April, 52 year old George Griffith pleaded guilty to robbing this HSBC bank on Tioga Street in Ithaca.
It happened back in January.
Police say he showed what appeared to be a gun covered in a white sock, demanded money, then fled on foot.
He was caught by police minutes later, with more than 8 thousand dollars.
Griffith was convicted of second degree robbery.
