SCRANTON — A man may spend over a decade behind bars after being sentenced for a string of robberies spanning three counties.

A Lackawanna County judge called Gerald Fuller a “one man crime wave,” and sentenced him to six and a half to 13 years in prison.

Fuller, of Scranton, pleaded guilty earlier this year to 13 robberies in Lackawanna, Luzerne, and Susquehanna Counties.

According to court officials, the judge came down harder on Fuller then expected.  Fuller allegedly had a plea agreement was with prosecutors, but the judge handed him a harsher sentence.
