A Pennsylvania man was sentenced yesterday to 10 years in prison for his role in an armed robbery last year in which a Taneytown victim was severely beaten with a brick.
Larry Crowl, 19, of Hanover received five years on the robbery count, and concurrent to that term, he was sentenced to 10 years on charges of robbery with a deadly weapon and conspiring to commit robbery.
Crowl originally received 15 years concurrent sentences on each of the latter two counts but Judge Luke K. Burns suspended five years of each.
He also was placed on five years' probation and ordered to pay $3,545 in restitution.
In sentencing, Burns cited the viciousness of the assault, referring to the victim's fractured jaw, cheek and orbital bones, which required facial reconstruction by doctors at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
Crowl pleaded guilty to robbing David Woodrow, who was fishing at a pond near Carroll County Rod & Gun Club on April 19.
