Toledo teen sentenced to 10 years for robberies

A 17-year-old Toledoan was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday after being convicted of several robberies of North Toledo homes.

Willis Johnson, of 21 Melrose Ave., was sentenced to two years in prison on each of five counts of robbery.

Judge Gene Zmuda ordered the sentences be served consecutively but concurrently with a two-year sentence for a felonious assault charge.

A junior at Scott High, Johnson pleaded no contest March 25 to five counts of burglary and one count of felonious assault. Charges of intimidation of a crime witness, aggravated robbery, robbery, and escape were dismissed.

One of the robberies occurred in 2006 and the remaining four occurred between late May, 2008, and September, 2008.
