Toledo man gets 4 years in prison for robberies


A Toledo man who took part in a pair of robberies was sentenced Tuesday to four years in prison.

Kesean Harris, 22, of 1822 Alvin St. pleaded no contest and was found guilty Nov. 19 of two counts of complicity to robbery for the Aug. 14 holdup of a Checker cab driver in the 3100 block of Warsaw Street and the Aug. 16 robbery of a Black & White cab driver in the 1000 block of Baker Street.

As part of a plea agreement, Lucas County Common Pleas Judge James Bates dismissed a count of robbery and two firearms specifications. Louis Kountouris, an assistant prosecutor, said a co-defendant who remains at large — not Harris — was identified as the gunman in the robberies.
