GREENEVILLE — The woman who drove the getaway car in two local bank robberies was sentenced last week to 37 months in prison for her actions by a federal judge.

Robin Culp received the three year prison sentence in U.S. District Court in Greeneville on Nov. 19. Three years of supervised release will follow the prison term, and Culp was ordered to pay $24,640 in restitution, along with her two co-defendants, Shannon Long and Cameron Tyler Horne.

According to court records, Horne robbed the Capital Bank on South Roan Street in Johnson City on Jan. 20 and the Regions Bank on East Stone Drive in Kingsport on April 15. Prosecutors say Culp drove the getaway car in both robberies, while Long helped with the planning of the crimes.

The trio were arrested in April and subsequently charged in federal court — Culp with two counts of bank robbery, Horne with bank robbery and aiding and abetting bank robbery, Long with aiding and abetting, concealing stolen funds and hindering an apprehension.
