PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – U.S. Attorney Paula Silsby says a man who robbed a Cornish bank last March will be spending five years in prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Matthew Jarvinen of Bridgton was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Portland. District Judge Brock Hornby imposed a sentence of 60 months in prison, plus three years of supervised release.

Jarvinen pleaded guilty in May to the robbery of a Bangor Savings Bank in Cornish. Officials say $3,280 in cash was taken during the holdup and about $1,200 was recovered.
