Man sentenced for 2016 bank robbery

Null to serve 6 to 20 years

MIDDLEBURG — Snyder County District Attorney Mike Piecuch has announced the sentencing for Gregory Scott Null, who committed a bank robbery in Middleburg in June 2016.

Null was sentenced by President Judge Michael T. Hudock to 6 to 20 years, set to run concurrently to a sentence he is already serving for another armed bank robbery in the state of Georgia. Piecuch had argued for the sentences to run consecutively.

Null entered a bank in Middleburg wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and demanded money from one of the tellers. Brandishing a handgun, he threatened to kill the teller. He obtained about $2,000 before fleeing by car. He was apprehended a few days later in Georgia after committing another bank robbery there.

He was convicted and sentenced for that crime and then extradited back to Snyder County in March 2019. Null pleaded to robbery and carrying a firearm without a license in Snyder County Court on Jan. 13, and was sentenced on Feb. 19.

“I want to compliment the members of the Middleburg Police Department and the Barrow County (Georgia) Sheriff’s Office who, with the brave assistance of the bank employees, brought Gregory Null to justice,” Piecuch said.
