Robbery Offenders Get 21 Years. Each.Two men accused of robbing a victim at gunpoint near Belmont and Racine in September 2013 may be second-guessing their decisions to take their cases to trial.
After being found guilty this week, Jeryl Bowdery and Tyrone Stone each received sentences of 21 years in prison.
Bowdery, 25, was found guilty of armed robbery, being a felon in possession of a weapon, unlawful use of a weapon with a prior conviction, and unlawful restraint. Not that he's celebrating, but Bowdery was acquitted of unlawful use of a weapon in a vehicle.
He has been incarcerated twice previously for narcotics violations. His attorney has already filed a motion for a new trial.
