(SEYMOUR) - The second of two men arrested in the robbery of a Uniontown convenience store in October 2014 has been sentenced.

The Jackson County Tribune reported 21-year-old Dustin Lee Dunn of Seymour received a 16-year prison term after he plead guilty to a Level 3 armed robbery charge in Jackson Circuit Court.

Jackson Circuit Judge Richard W. Poynter ordered Dunn to serve that prison sentence concurrently to the sentences he recently received in three other Jackson Circuit Court causes. Those sentences were imposed in two separate felony cases in Clark County, along with one felony case in Scott and another in Jennings County.

20-year-old Dalton R. Carver of New Washington received a four-year prison term after pleading guilty to the Level 5 felony charge of robbery in Jackson Circuit Court earlier this year. Poynter suspended 1,390 days of that sentence, placing Carver on supervised probation for those days.

Dunn and Carver were arrested in late 2014 in connection with an armed robbery on October 13 at the Uniontown Marathon in Jackson County in October of that year.

Dunn was also charged with kidnapping in that robbery. .

Jackson County Police say Dunn showed the clerk a BB gun that looked like a real firearm telling the clerk to hand over the money in the register, which the clerk did.

The other sentences in Jackson County stem from Dunn's decision to plead guilty to burglary in separate cases and auto theft in a fourth case. All were tied to a crime spree in late 2014.

The state agreed to dismiss two pending cases against Dunn as part of the plea deal. Dunn was ordered to pay a $500 public defender fee and received 597 days credit and 199 days good time credit for the time he spent in jail after his arrest.
