Corinne Nalesnik, 29, pleaded guilty in July to one count of complicity to robbery, a third-degree felony, stemming from an April 4 incident at Citizens Bank, 3720 Center Road.

She had been indicted on a second-degree count of complicity to robbery, which was amended as part of a plea agreement.

Judge Christopher J. Collier gave Nalesnik 218 days credit for time served at the Medina County Jail. He also waived fines and court costs. Nalesnik’s co-defendant, Robert Sutton, 30, of Strongsville, was sentenced to four years in prison, with credit for 190 days served at the jail, on two counts of robbery, second- and third-degree felonies.

On the afternoon of April 4, Sutton presented a Citizens Bank employee with a note that said “This is a robbery ... empty the drawer,” Brunswick police said.

Witnesses reported seeing a man running out of the bank and leaving in a vehicle driven by Nalesnik.

The two were found April 10 at Elm Haven Motel, 11094 Pearl Road, Strongsville, after police executed a search warrant in connection with the robbery.

Police said they recovered an unspecified amount of cash and drug paraphernalia.
