Woman Receives 15 Years In Sykesville Robbery Case

April 25, 1997

A Randallstown woman, who received a 25-year prison sentence for her role as driver in a series of armed robberies in Baltimore County, was sentenced yesterday to 15 years in prison for a similar crime last year in Carroll County.

Temmy V. Stokes, 39, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit armed robbery. In a plea agreement, Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold sentenced her to a 15-year term concurrent to the Baltimore County sentence.

Stokes was arrested in Baltimore County on March 29, 1996, four days after she drove two men to Sykesville, where the High's convenience store was robbed of $138 and jewelry was taken from two clerks, prosecutors said.
