GOSHEN — An Elkhart man who was convicted of robbing a woman at gunpoint in 2020 has received a 31-year sentence.

Mikell Gary, 32, was convicted of armed robbery following a two-day jury trial in August. He also admitted to a habitual criminal offender enhancement, which was added to his charges after his arrest, outside the presence of the jury.

Would a truly repentant offender complain that the woman he robbed would not face him in court? The sad part, to me, is that this man will undoubtedly get an early release for good behavior, mostly because our prisons are so overcrowded. This man now has a chance to be rehabilitated. His past history says it is unlikely he will be. So sad. Another young life wasted.
