A Maryland man has been sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for robberies of banks in Maryland, Georgia, North Carolina and Delaware.
A news release from the U.S. Department of Justice said a federal judge on Wednesday sentenced 31-year-old Zachary Scott Shanaberger to 151 months in prison for four counts of bank robbery. According to his plea agreement, Shanaberger robbed nine banks in Maryland, Georgia, North Carolina and Delaware in 2010.
