Man receives probation sentence for April bank robbery

A Bloomington man who pleaded guilty to robbing a Bloomington bank earlier this year has learned his sentence.

As previously reported, Hennepin County court records show 41-year-old Mark Nils Johnson filed a petition to plead guilty to one count of second-degree aggravated robbery for stealing $4,100 from TopLine Credit Union on April 21.

His plea hearing was held on Aug. 22 under Fourth District Judge Kerry Meyer, who also presided over Wednesday’s sentencing.

Meyer sentenced Johnson to 146 days to the Hennepin County workhouse, however, he received credit for those days, and will now serve four years if supervised probation with Hennepin County Community Corrections.

He must also pay $748 in fees, which includes $620 in restitution.

Under the terms of the plea agreement, Johnson was required to pay restitution but would have his sentence stayed pending the completion of four years of probation. He would also have a charge of fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle dropped.
