City man sentenced for bank robbery

A Baltimore man was sentenced last week to more than 15 years in prison for bank robbery.

Duane Curtis Chase, 44, pleaded guilty in federal court in August to one count of bank robbery - a charge that stemmed from a string of incidents in which robbers made death threats and took tens of thousands of dollars.

Chief U.S. District Judge Benson E. Legg sentenced him Thursday to 188 months in prison for the bank robbery charge, and to a consecutive year for violating the conditions of a supervised release.

Ravens fans advised to avoid Pratt St. today

Repairs on a sewer line on Pratt Street in downtown Baltimore were complete last night, but it was unclear whether all lanes would reopen in time for today's Ravens game at M&T Bank stadium, a city public works spokesman said.

The road was closed as a result of a 12-foot-long sinkhole that appeared at the edge of Pratt Street near Eutaw Street shortly before noon Friday. The city Transportation Department was urging drivers to use alternate routes to get downtown today.

Two lanes of through-traffic are open on Pratt Street between Paca and Eutaw streets, according to the Transportation Department. There may be three lanes open today in anticipation of game traffic.
