Garvin County man sentenced to two life terms for robbery

By  | 

PAULS VALLEY, Okla. (KXII) -- A Garvin County man received two life sentences this week.

A jury found Jeremy Lavorchek guilty of nine charges in January, related to the 2016 burglary of a Pauls Valley pharmacy.

Prosecutors say Lavorchek and another man, Travis Seat, tied up the workers, stole drugs and cash from the store, then pistol whipped a female employee.

The jury recommended nine life sentences for Lavorcheck, but the judge gave him two.

Lavorchek and Seat are also accused of escaping from jail last year, but were quickly recaptured.

Seat is due for trial in April.
