North Dakota man sentenced for 2013 bank robbery

FARGO, N.D. — A North Dakota man who has admitted to robbing a bank in 2013 has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says 28-year-old Antoine Williams was also ordered to serve three years of supervised release. The Minot man earlier pleaded guilty to bank robbery.

Authorities say Williams came away with more than $6,200 after handing a threatening note to a teller at Gate City Bank in Carrington on Oct. 24, 2013. He was arrested later the same day after a Carrington citizen phoned police with a description of his vehicle.

He originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea months after a judge ruled him competent to stand trial following a hearing in July.
