YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A woman who robbed a downtown Youngstown bank by saying she had a bomb strapped to her apologized for her actions,.
Marion Edwards was sentenced Tuesday to four years in prison after she pleaded guilty to a felony robbery charge.
Police said Edwards went to the Home Savings and Loan on West Federal Street in March. Once there, she handed the teller a note saying she had a bomb.
The teller gave Edwards money and she walked out of the bank and boarded a WRTA bus traveling to Youngstown’s north side.
Edwards told the judge that she was sorry for the harm she may have caused.
“I wanted to say I am really sorry, and I genuinely apologize for giving her emotional and physical fear, and I hope that one day she will be able to forgive me,” she said.
Edwards had no criminal history before this incident.
