A Baltimore man already sentenced to prison for bank robberies in Franklin County and in Maryland was convicted Thursday for a Springettsbury Township bank robbery.
Corey Richard Horne, 43, was found guilty during a jury trial at the York County Judicial Center on a felony robbery charge, as well as misdemeanor theft and receiving stolen property charges , according to court documents.
Sentencing is scheduled for June 20 before Common Pleas Judge Richard K. Renn. Horne remains in York County Prison awaiting sentencing.
The charges stem from the May 2009 robbery of PNC Bank, at 2430 E. Market St. in Springettsbury Township. Horne made off with $1,130.
Horne will also stand trial for three other York County robberies.
His next trial is scheduled for Monday morning for the April 29, 2009, robbery of Wachovia Bank, located at 50 Haines Road in Springettsbury Township, Taken during that robbery was $1,333.
Two others: Horne will also stand trial in May for the robberies of two Fulton Bank locations in the county.
He is accused of robbing bank locations at 1500 Kenneth Road in West Manchester Township on April 17, 2009, and at 1102 Shrewsbury Commons Ave. in Shrewsbury Township on April 25, 2009.
Taken during those robberies was a combined $8,420.
With just one of four trials over, Deputy prosecutor T.L. Kearney said he wouldn't comment on the case "because of the other outstanding matters."
George Margetas, Horne's attorney, said his client "maintains his innocence in these cases."
Timing: The York County cases against Horne nearly didn't go to trial.
Renn dismissed the cases last April because Horne hadn't been tried for the robberies within 120 days of being extradited from Maryland.
When Horne was extradited from Maryland on the Pennsylvania cases, he went to Franklin County first. By the time Franklin County had finished with Horne, he had been in Pennsylvania beyond the 120 days.
An interstate agreement on prisoners requires them to be tried within 120 days of being brought to a jurisdiction.
The York County District Attorney's Office appealed Renn's ruling to the state's Superior Court.
The court reversed the ruling, allowing York County prosecutors to take Horne to trial, according to court documents.
