A Tupelo man has been sentenced to more than 12 years on two counts related to the robbery of a Tupelo bank. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that 25-year-old Cory Juwan Baker of Tupelo pleaded guilty to bank robbery and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. He was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock. Baker also was ordered to pay $5,322 restitution. Baker was indicted on three counts in October 2011 in connection with a Sept. 9, 2011, armed robbery of M&F Bank. He pleaded guilty Aug. 17 to the two counts. The government dropped the third count in exchange for his guilty plea. Information from: Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, http://djournal.com Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
