Senior U.S. District Judge Anthony Alaimo handed down the maximum jail sentence to Roy Anthony Pruitt, 43, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., after he pleaded guilty to robbing a SunTrust Bank inside a Publix supermarket in Brunswick, Fla., on Oct. 1, 2007, the (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union reported Wednesday.

A real good man at heart." Pruitt, who has 16 prior convictions for fraud and theft, was also ordered to pay $5,375 in restitution and sentenced to three years of federal probation following his release from prison.
