A Hodgenville man was sentenced to 20 years after pleading guilty to a pair of robberies at a local convenience store.
Bradley Hovious, 31, pleaded guilty in March in LaRue Circuit Court to an amended count of second-degree robbery of IGA Express on Lincoln Boulevard in November 2011.
Hodgenville City Police said Hovious, wearing a blue bandana over his face, robbed a store clerk at knifepoint. He walked outside where he was promptly arrested by an officer who had been tipped off to the suspect’s suspicious activity.
Hovious pleaded guilty also to the May 2011 robbery of the now-closed IGA Express on Greensburg Street.
Police say he wore a mask and robbed a clerk at knifepoint.
Hovious pleaded guilty also to being a persistent felony offender, second degree.
Pre-sentencing investigation was completed by the court. Hovious was fined $385 in both cases.
