A Eudora man awaits sentencing and a Lawrence man awaits trial in connection with the March robbery of a woman at gunpoint.

Jeremy Coozennoy, 18, pleaded guilty Friday to attempted aggravated robbery and, because of his criminal record and pending charges, could face a prison sentence rather than probation at his Dec. 4 sentencing.

He was originally charged with aggravated robbery for a March 7 incident, during which he and Reggie Price, 20, allegedly confronted a woman at an unreported location in Lawrence and demanded money. Coozennoy allegedly pulled a pistol from underneath his coat. It was not known whether the second suspect, Price, was armed. The suspects did not get away with any money, according to court documents.

Coozennoy is also awaiting prosecution on charges of auto burglary, felony theft and criminal damage to property, stemming from a May 14 incident. If convicted of at least one additional felony, Coozennoy would be facing a minimum of 3 years 2 months in prison.

He was already in Douglas County Jail for probation violations when a warrant was issued for his arrest in August. Coozennoy was on probation for several juvenile offenses, including battery on a law enforcement officer, in 1995.

Coozennoy will remain in Douglas County Jail until he is sentenced.

Price, who remained in Douglas County Jail Monday on $15,000 bond, is awaiting trial on an aggravated robbery charge.
