Local man sentenced to four years in prison for bank break-in

A McConnelsville, Ohio, man was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty Thursday to breaking into a bank in July.

Carl W. Davis Jr., 25, pleaded guilty as part of an agreement with the Athens County Prosecutor’s Office to one count of burglary for breaking into the Community Bank in Amesville on July 21.

Davis broke into the bank by cutting a hole into the floor of the apartment above the bank and the next day, a bank teller found him lying in a closet of the bank, according to court documents.

Athens County Court of Common Pleas Judge Michael Ward sentenced Davis to four years in prison Thursday, according to a news release from the prosecutor’s office.

Davis could have been sentenced to a maximum of eight years in prison if convicted of the second-degree felony at trial, according to the Ohio Revised Code.
