A convicted felon has been sent back to prison for his role in robbing a Kearney man of marijuana and money.
24-year old Joshua Lewis, of Grand Island, was sentenced Wednesday in Buffalo County District Court to 15 to 25 years in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm and felony robbery of a Kearney man on February 3.
Lewis' co-defendant, 20-year-old Jason Warrington, of Kearney, has been convicted of being an accessory to a felony for providing Lewis the gun used in the incident.
Warrington remains at the Buffalo County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
He will be sentenced in August.
