Judge Jeannine Pratt told Cale Pence, 20, he was "incredibly lucky" the victim didn't die from a head injury sustained in the March 29 incident in a parking lot off Imperial Court in Troy. Police said a Troy man suffered a head injury during the attempt to steal drugs and was taken by Careflight to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment.
Pence initially was charged with felony aggravated robbery. He later pleaded guilty to felony robbery in Miami County Common Pleas Court. He declined comment before the sentencing.
