A Waltonville woman was sentenced to eight years in prison for her role in a bank robbery in Mt. Vernon.

Amy. M. Ramsey, 27, of Waltonville pleaded guilty to one count of financial institution robbery and was sentenced to served eight years in prison with two years of mandatory supervised release.
