Ohio Man Gets Extended Stay in Prison for Hastings Robbery
An Ohio man will spend at least 25 years in jail after a robbery in Barry County last October.
Eric Lawson was arrested shortly after he robbed the Walgreens store in Hastings after getting away with an unknown amount of cash.
Lawson pled no contest to the robbery as a fourth-time habitual offender in a plea bargain in April, dropping a weapons charge and another charge of unarmed robbery. He was sentenced Thursday to 25 to 60 years in prison for the crime.
Lawson still faces robbery charges in Ohio.
