BALTIMORE (AP) -- A 31-year-old man has been sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for robbing a Baltimore bar.

Branch Sparrow of Baltimore was sentenced in federal court on Friday.

According to his plea agreement, Sparrow and another man went into a Fleet Street bar in August 2011. Prosecutors say Sparrow was armed with a pistol and threatened customers and employees.

Sparrow took about $800 from the cash register and fled. Police officers responding to the robbery say Sparrow and his accomplice and arrested them.
