An Orangeburg man will spend the next several years in prison after admitting he intended to steal money from S.C. State Credit Union at 1081 Boulevard Street.
John Albert Green, 33, of Beason Road, pleaded guilty to entering a bank with the intent to steal.
First Judicial Circuit Judge Ed Dickson sentenced Green to eight years in prison.
His anticipated release date is June 3, 2026.
Dickson gave him credit for having already served time at the Orangeburg County Detention Center since Feb. 21, 2019.
On that date, Green entered the credit union at 8:40 a.m. and slipped a note to one of the tellers requesting money.
Warrants state, “Witnesses heard a heavy object in his jacket pocket.”
Green allegedly “held his hand in his pocket,” warrants stated.
An incident report states that he walked out of the bank with $2,541 in cash.
At his bond hearing, Green told the court, “I was out striving for a job.”
Green was also on probation at the time of his arrest.
