The CNS math teacher accused of robbing a bank was expected to be in court today. Instead Mark Gurniak II, waved his right to a preliminary hearing. This allows the defense to negotiate with the prosecution for a possible resolution or to have the case moved directly to the grand jury.
Gurniak entered a Chase bank last week and robbed the bank of $20,000 at gunpoint.
In January, Gurniak was arrested for possessing stolen license plates and owes more than $9,000 in bank or credit card debts.
Gurniak remains in the Onondaga County Justice Center and is expected to be back in court in June.
