EAST ST. LOUIS — A Glen Carbon man was sentenced Tuesday to nine years in federal prison for armed robbery.
In a press release Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Donald S. Boyce said the court also ordered Jonathan Michael Malone, 53, to serve three years of supervised release, pay a $300 fine and pay $102 in restitution to the shop owner.
Malone was charged with interference of commerce by robbery, brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Malone admitted in open court that on Jan. 14, he robbed the One Stop Shop Gas Station in Maryville and brandished a handgun at the owner. Malone possessed the gun unlawfully after having been previously convicted of armed robbery.
The case was investigated by the Glen Carbon Police Department, the Maryville Police Department, the Illinois State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney William E. Coonan.
