SOUTH
GLENS FALLS, N.Y. – A South Glens Falls woman sentenced Friday in connection to
a knifepoint robbery and beating case near the Fenimore Bridge.

Erica
S. Bannin, 22, was sentenced to a definite term of three and one-half years in
state prison with two and one-half years post-release supervision.  She had previously pled guilty to felony Robbery
in the second-degree.

According
to authorities, she participated in the knifepoint robbery and beating of a
Hudson Falls man near a fishing access site near the Fenimore Bridge in South
Glens Falls, on July 30, 2013. 

Bannin's
co-defendants, Thomas Ford, Liana Flack, and a 17-year old male, have
already entered guilty pleas to the same charge and are expected to be
sentenced in December.   

“Erica
Bannin is directly complicit in the commission of this crime. She placed a
knife against the young man's throat forcing him to surrender his wallet and
property to cohort Liana Flack.  Moments later, Thomas Ford and the
17-year old beat and stomped the young man to the ground warning him not to
contact the police to report the robbery. Bravely, the young man received
help from a good Samaritan on the Fenimore Bridge, and police from Hudson Falls
and the Saratoga County Sheriff's Department acted swiftly to apprehend the
four assailants and recover the young man's property that same day.” said
District Attorney James Murphy.
