Martha's Vineyard Man Gets 8 Years For Bank Robbery

A Martha's Vineyard resident has been sentenced to eight years and four months in federal prison for bank robbery.

The 40-year-old Petyoshin was caught on surveillance cameras brandishing a handgun during the heist, in which he made off with about 20-thousand dollars.

Petyoshin will also face five years of supervised release after he leaves prison.
