      Teen sentenced to prison for armed robbery

      The Iron Mountain man who pled guilty to the armed robbery incident in August has been sentenced to prison.

      Seventeen-year-old Jacelin Sims has been sentenced to a minimum of three years, maximum of 15 years, for the charges stemming from the incident. According to the plea deal, he was charged with a felony count of armed robbery, one count of breaking and entering a vehicle with damage, and one count of larceny in a building.

      During the incident, where Sims was one of three involved, the victim was held with a knife to his throat to allow for items in his home to be taken. The judge also allowed Sims eligibility to the state boot camp program after 12 months in prison.
