EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A man who robbed a Eugene bank just minutes after he was released from an overcrowded jail was sentenced Wednesday to more than five years in a federal prison.

Christopher Franklin Weaver pleaded guilty to robbing a total of three banks in a three-week period last November.

The Register-Guard reports ( http://is.gd/IqXwC9 ) the 34-year-old said he held up banks to feed his heroin addiction.
