Man sentenced in robbery, burglary case

January 16, 2009


A 24-year-old Leavenworth man received more than two years in prison for robbery and aggravated burglary convictions for an August 2007 residential robbery.

District Judge Paula Martin sentenced Robert J. Swann to the term Thursday.

Prosecutors at trial argued that Swann was a mastermind behind the crimes in the 1100 block of Ohio Street.

He enlisted the help of convicted felons Raheem Armstead, Jacob Rowls and Marquis Holmes, all of Leavenworth, and drove them to the residence.

Those three men have also been convicted in the case.

I would think being a criminal "mastermind" would warrant more than two (+) years.

Paula loves to give criminals a break. Afterall, their crimes only hurt other people.
