A Little Hocking man accused of robbing an Athens County bank last year was back in court Thursday morning.
Patrick Slider was in Athens County Common Pleas Court for a pre-trial hearing, where a suppression hearing was set for June 15 and 16.
Slider is facing numerous charges including aggravated robbery, kidnapping, inducing panic, tampering with evidence, unlawful use of a hoax weapon of mass destruction and burglary.
The charges stem from an incident where authorities say Slider planted a fake pipe bomb at two post offices while he robbed the Hocking Valley Bank in July of 2008.
Slider will now head back to the Washington County Jail to serve his sentence there for drug and theft charges.
