A Utica man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for the armed robbery of the Access Federal Credit Union in Rome in August of 2013.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 56-year old Robert Hendricks has also been ordered to pay $24,400 in restitution to the Credit Union.

Hendricks was found guilty of using a firearm during the robbery.

Two co-defendants -- Skakeal Hendricks and Taiquan Howard -- have pleaded guilty to their involvement in the robbery.  Hendricks was sentenced to 99 months in prison and Howard was sentenced to 125 months behind bars.  They were both ordered to make restitution to the credit union.
