Kingston bank robber sentenced to prison

O'Connor

KINGSTON – The Hannacroix man who pled guilty to robbing the Key Bank branch on Wall Street in the City of Kingston on January 18 was sentenced by Judge Donald Williams to two to six years in state prison.

This incident involving Ryan O’Connor was one in a series of bank robberies alleged to have been committed by him in Albany, Rensselaer and Ulster counties over a several week period last winter.

Kingston City Police handled the investigation and arrest of O’Connor with assistance from the Ulster County District Attorney’s and Sheriff’s offices and other local law enforcement agencies.

During his sentencing, O’Connor apologized for his actions and said he wished he had done more to address his drug addiction before it got out of control. He also told the court that he did not blame the drug addiction because there are many drug addicts that do not rob banks.
