A 27-year-old Oakland man who robbed a Skowhegan credit union with a knife was sentenced to eight years in prison today, according to an announcement from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Chief Judge John A. Woodcock of U.S. District Court in Bangor also ordered Paul Garland to pay $9,147 in restitution and included five years of supervised release in the sentence.

In June 2009, Garland robbed a teller at knifepoint at the Taconnet Federal Union in Skowhegan.
