Teen nets 7 cents in robbery, gets 2-6 years in prison

Syracuse, New York - A 15-year-old Syracuse boy will now spend the next two to six years in juvenile detention and the rest of his life as a felon. It was all for a robbery that earned him only pocket change. Anthony Stewart was found guilty of first-degree robbery earlier this month for beating and kicking a 73-year-old man and robbing him of seven cents. Prosecutors say the victim was on his way to a store when the two teenagers ran up from behind, knocked him into a snow bank, then kicked and punched him. The two teens had handguns, which Stewart later admitted were BB guns, prosecutors said. Onondaga County Judge William Walsh rejected a defense lawyer’s request to treat Anthony Stewart as a youthful offender. More
