Accused Calhoun bank robber Richard Vance, who was to go to trial Tuesday in Calhoun Circuit Court, agreed to a plea agreement over the September, 2010 robbery of Calhoun Banks in Arnoldsburg.

Jurors were dismissed at noon in Grantsville after Prosecutor Rocky Holmes and Vance's attorney John Oshoway accepted the agreement before Judge Thomas Evans III.

The agreement calls for Vance pleading guilty of the felony offense of robbery in the 2nd degree.

He will appear in court on March 12 at at 1:30 p.m. for sentencing.

Vance came to the Arnoldsburg bank on an ATV, face covered, entering the bank, demanding a yet undisclosed amount of money from a teller at knife-point.

Vance has faced other charges for a Spencer burglary and violation of probation, fleeing to Texas.

More recently he has been charged with the sexual assault of a 16-year-old female in Calhoun.

The robbery was the second of Calhoun Banks in Arnoldsburg recently, the first bank robberies in the county's history.
