Man Gets 15 Years In Prison For Jacksonville Hotel Robbery

A sixth person has been convicted and is headed to prison for an armed robbery of a hotel.

33 year old Stanley Clyburn of Jacksonville was sentenced in federal court in New Bern to nearly 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to being involved in the 2009 robbery of the Liberty Inn Hotel on Lejeune Boulevard in Jacksonville. Prosecutors say Clyburn helped plan the robbery and provided the gun and the vehicle used, charges he pleaded guilty to.

The investigation also determined he helped plan the robbery of another hotel a year earlier that was unsuccessful because a security guard started firing shots.

    OK, I am a loser who loves to comment on comments. He beat her to death with his "bear fists"? Clearly he didn't do it, it was either Smokey or Grizzly Adams. Just to stay on topic, let's blame Obama for this.

    I'm ok with 15 years but 10 would have been ok too. What KILLS me is some guy beats his 22 year old girlfriend to death with his bear fists in New bern and got 15 years. And also a meth operator got 15 years. Now i have to say our legal system is not just BROKEN it is STUPID and anyone handing out these sentences should be ridiculed and the press needs to start showing every sentence made in an organized way to show the clueless public how stupid our legal system is. Drug dealers dont deserve 5 plus year sentences. robbers do deserve harsh treatment 8 - 10 - 15 plus years. Assaults that result in serious injuries deserve severe punishment but i dont think they get it-i'm not sure about these cases? Murders by violence (not accidents ie cars or mistakes) deserve severe punishment. For example the guy that beat his GF to death should have gotten 35 years with no parole minimum.

      The guy that beat his GF to death should have been sentenced to the death penalty or life in prison with no possibility of parole!!
