and Jaime Alvaro Jr., 19, of 217 Second Ave., Chesapeake,

each pleaded guilty last week to amended indictments of attempted complicity to commit aggravated robbery Lawrence County prosecutor J.B. Collier Jr. said.

A firearms specification was deleted in all three cases. Lawrence County Common Pleas Judge Frank McCown sentenced each man to four years in prison.

All were given credit for time served.

On the evening of Sept. 3, authorities said two men entered the convenience store, one carrying a black pistol and the other a backpack. They demanded money and then fled.

Also, an Ironton man will spend five years in prison after pleading guilty in connection with two robberies in the city earlier this year. Judge Richard Walton sentenced Stanley Carter, 25, whose last known address was 511 S. Ninth St., to five years in prison for the aggravated burglary of an Ironton residence Jan. 7, and five years for a robbery that took place March 4. Both five-year terms will run concurrently. Carter was given credit for time served and ordered to pay court costs.

On Jan. 4, a man told authorities he had given Carter and another man, Eric Clemons,

19, of 1117 S. 10th St., a ride and that the two men had robbed him of $143.

Clemons was also arrested in connection with that incident. Both men were later charged with aggravated robbery when a Vernon Street family said two men with guns came to their house and demanded money.
