'Granny Robber' gets prison time

February 19, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A retired bank teller who became known as the "Granny Robber" for a series of bank robberies in southwest Ohio has been sentenced to six years in prison on top of an earlier three-year sentence.

Barbara Joly of Middletown was sentenced in Warren County Common Pleas Court for robbing three banks in that county.

The 68-year-old was sentenced earlier this month in neighboring Butler County after pleading guilty to one bank robbery there.

Joly's lawyer has said the robberies were an attempt to support a grown son who had fallen on hard times.
