Man sentenced to life plus 5 years for 2013 bank robbery in Savannah


A Savannah man who robbed a Wells Fargo Bank last year was sentenced to life in prison plus five years without the possibility of parole in a Chatham County courtroom Friday morning. 

Authorities say in March 2013, Marcus Newton went into the Wells Fargo Bank on Ogeechee Road, waved a pistol at the tellers and demanded money. 

Earlier this month, Newton was found guilty on multiple charges including armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, among others.
