Sentence handed down in robbery case

From the moment that a person is questioned by police all the way through an arrest and the ensuing criminal defense process, people in Nebraska accused of crimes should be able to trust that they will receive just and fair treatment. In some cases, this may mean being found innocent of the charges levied against them. In other cases, it may mean being fairly sentenced for acts they may have been involved in.

The case of one man who was charged in a robbery at a general store in Fremont last autumn offers a very good example of this. After the man's arrest, he was eventually convicted of two different felony charges. One, a Class IIA felony, was for making terrorist threats. The second, a Class II felony, was for the robbery. For both charges, the defendant could have been sentenced to a maximum of 70 years in prison as the first charge carried a 20-year maximum sentence and the second charge a 50-year maximum sentence.

While prosecutors lobbied for the man to receive a prison sentence between 10 and 15 years, he was given a sentence of between four and five years for the robbery charge and another three years for the threat charge. As both sentences will be served concurrently, he will ultimately spend four to five years in custody.

People who want to understand how they can receive fair treatment and consideration during a criminal defense might want to talk with an experienced attorney in Nebraska.
