Man who shot teller sentenced to 25 years
GREENSBURG, Pa. (11/1/11)--A man who shot a teller during a robbery in January 2010 at Westmoreland Community FCU in Greensburg, Pa., was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

David Mathis, 47, apologized for his actions Wednesday--saying tough times caused him to commit the robbery--before he was sentenced in Westmoreland County Court by U.S. District Judge Donetta Ambrose (Associated Press Oct. 26).

Mathis allegedly pistol-whipped one teller and shot another during the robbery, authorities said.

Mathis, who in July pleaded guilty to the robbery, said he didn't know how to operate the weapon and it went off by accident. Judge Ambrose said that was no excuse.

In February 2009, Mathis was released from prison after serving nearly 15 years for five robberies committed in 1994 in the Pittsburgh area.
