Ardmore Man Sentenced to 50 Years

4-13-06 - The verdict is in for an Ardmore man accused of robbing his girlfriend’s 84-year old grandfather.

It took jury members less than 30 minutes to find 43-year old James Earl Adams guilty of strong-armed robbery. He is accused of assaulting 84-year old Warren Washburn and stealing $300 from him back in September of 2005.

Adams was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but since he had prior convictions he will have to serve 85% of the sentence.
