A former Shenango Valley man has been sentenced to more than 6 years in prison for a Farrell carjacking and a Springfield Township jewelry store robbery, a prison term that has been added on top of 15 years he got for robbing a Brookfield convenience store and three other Ohio businesses.

Richard E. Coleman, 39, formerly of Hermitage and Sharon, was sentenced Friday by Mercer County Common Pleas Judge Thomas R. Dobson to 81 to 162 months in state prison.

Coleman had pleaded guilty to robbery for breaking a glass case with a gun March 14, 2005, at Zale’s Jewelry Outlet at Prime Outlets at Grove Cit and taking more than $11,000 in items. He also pleaded guilty to robbery of a motor vehicle and driving during suspension, stemming from an April 12, 2005, carjacking when he threatened to shoot the female driver, dragged her as she tried to get out of the car, and led police on a high-speed chase that ended in New Castle.

Dobson also fined Coleman $200 and ordered him to pay $160 restitution to the carjacking victim and $13,295 to Zale’s.

The judge also ordered the sentence to be served consecutively with all others Coleman is facing, meaning this one will be served when the others are completed.

In February, Coleman was sentenced in U.S. District Court. Cleveland, to 15 years in prison for robbing Quick Stop, 7045 Warren-Sharon Road, Brookfield, on Dec. 16, 2004, and Jan. 3 and April 2, 2005; Big Lots, Youngstown, on April 3, 2005; White’s Mobile, a towing company in Niles, Ohio, on April 6, 2005; and Perkins Restaurant, Boardman, Ohio, on April 6, 2005. Coleman pleaded guilty to six counts of robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm.

Coleman was sentenced in May 2005 to 9 to 24 months in jail for pleading guilty to a consolidated charge of retail theft in three cases.
