A man charged with multiple bank robberies got an earful from the judge during his sentencing hearing on Monday.

Chad Rennicker and his brother reportedly robbed a bank branch in Colerain. Chad Rennicker then cooperated with authorities, and in exchange, was given an extremely light sentence: one month in the county jail. However, on the day that Chad Rennicker was to report to jail, he was a no-show, because he was apparently robbing another bank in Meigs County, Ohio.

On Monday, Judge Frank Fregiato was outraged with Rennicker's behavior. For violating his earlier community control sanction, Rennicker was sentenced to state prison in Ohio for 30 months, and will be transported there immediately. Upon release, he will be on parole for another five years, and that's not including the charges he still faces in Meigs County.
