SOUTH BEND — Appellate justices have ruled that a man convicted of robbing a bank while in disguise was sentenced appropriately based on the evidence.

The Indiana Court of Appeals on Monday affirmed the conviction of Tevin Attkisson, who received a 16-year sentence for armed robbery. A jury found him guilty of the Level 3 felony during a trial in September.
