A Michigan man has been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison for a bank robbery that netted $106.
  
Robert Markus of Brighton was given his punishment Thursday in a Livingston County courtroom after earlier pleading guilty to bank robbery and armed robbery in a deal with prosecutors. Chief Judge Miriam Cavanaugh ordered him to serve a minimum of 6¾ years and repay the money.
  
Markus was charged after authorities said he robbed a TCF Bank branch in January in Genoa Township, near Howell. Police say Markus was wearing a ski mask and implied that he had a weapon, but didn’t show one during the robbery.
  
Markus faced possible life in prison because of previous convictions, including larceny and breaking and entering.
