Man convicted of robbery sentenced
GOSHEN — Deshawn Wells, who pleaded guilty to robbery, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Thursday, Dec. 12, in Elkhart’s Circuit Court.
Wells pleaded guilty to the charge of robbery while armed with a deadly weapon. By pleading guilty to the charge and accepting a sentence of 20 years in prison, Wells avoided the risk of getting a habitual offender enhancement.
Wells was arrested June 26, shortly after the Neighborhood Convenience Store, located at 1712 Oakland Ave., was robbed at gunpoint.
Joshua Bagwell, 19, Justin Kearney, 25, Andrew Ormanovich, 20, and Kayla Losee, 19, were arrested and charged for their connection to a robbery that happened June 15 at the Neighborhood Convenience store.
All four people pleaded guilty to their charges.
