PERRY -- A Houston County man was sentenced Thursday to 15 years in prison for robbing a CB&T Bank in 2011 in Warner Robins.

Jay Aultman, 45, also received five years probation for the robbery by intimidation, according to a Houston County District Attorney’s Office news release. Aultman was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Katherine K. Lumsden.

Aultman also was ordered to pay restitution and have no contact with the victims, the release stated.

Aultman came into the CB&T Bank at 1444 Watson Blvd. about 10 a.m. Sept. 16, 2011. He handed a teller a note demanding money and was given an undisclosed amount before fleeing on foot, according to a Warner Robins police news release.

Two days before the robbery, Aultman had been released from prison, where he had been jailed for child molestation, according to Georgia prison records.

His prior Houston County convictions also include failure to register as a sex offender and enticing a child for indecent purposes.
