PORTLAND, Maine — A Portland man will spend the next 100 months in prison after he was sentenced Thursday for his connection in a September 2013 bank robbery, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.
Matthieu O’Rourke, 36, also will be under three years of supervised released once he is released from prison.
O’Rourke pled guilty to a charge of bank robbery on June 11.
O’Rourke is guilty of robbing a Portland Key Bank. He gave a teller a note stating “I’m a crazy person. No one will be hurt as long as you give me money out of both drawers.”
He managed to get away with around $1,280, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.. O’Rourke was arrested in October 2013 in Florida.
O’Rourke is described as a career criminal, whose prior convictions include solicitation to commit murder in 1998, for which he spent eight years behind bars.
