Modern-day Robin Hood sentenced in Laconia after robbing bank, giving cash away




Laconia A homeless man who robbed a bank was a modern-day Robin Hood who gave the money to others down on their luck, a defense attorney told a judge on Wednesday. Public Defender Jesse Friedman said Johnathan Ellinger was desperate and hungry when he robbed the Bank of New Hampshire on Pleasant Street in Laconia on Jan. 3 and made off with slightly more than $2,500 in cash. Shortly after the robbery, Ellinger went to a downtown church and gave the money to four or five other people.
