CONCORD, N.H. — A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to 6 ½ years in federal prison for robbing a credit union and mailing threatening communications.

Court records say 37-year-old Eric Rouleau, of Somersworth, robbed the Northeast Credit Union in Rochester in April 2016, after showing a note to a teller. While he was in jail awaiting trial on the charge, Rouleau mailed a series of threatening letters to a former girlfriend. There was a restraining order prohibiting contact with her at the time.

Rouleau pleaded guilty to the charges on March 3.
