ALBION – A Rochester man who was sentenced to 15 years in state prison on March 3 for robbing a bank in Albion was back in Orleans County Court today.

Jeremy Rothmund was arraigned for second-degree assault, a charge that could result in seven more years to his prison sentence.

While an inmate in the county jail, he allegedly injured a corrections officer on Oct. 16. Rothmund is represented by the public defender’s office. He entered a not guilty plea today.

Orleans County Court Judge James Punch arraigned Rothmund, who is now an inmate at the Elmira Correctional Facility. He is due back in county court April 7 for his next court appearance.

Rothmund, 30, admitted in previous court appearances he robbed the Bank of America on July 2. He said he was trying to feed a heroin addiction.
