Convicted Bank Robber, 71, Admits to Oriskany Falls Bank Robbery
A man who served 10 years in prison for past bank robberies has admitted to robbing Berkshire Bank in Oriskany Falls in May.
71-year-old Walter Parker of Carthage pleaded guilty to robbery in Oneida County Court Tuesday.
The Rome Sentinel reports Parker held up the bank wearing a cowboy hat, carrying what appeared to be a gun.
He was convicted of four New York bank robberies back in 2005 and sentenced to more than a decade behind bars.
Parker's sentencing for the local robbery is set for October.
