LIMA — A Lima man charged with the robbery and extortion of a University of Northwest Ohio student nearly two years ago was sentenced Monday to six years in prison. Under a unique plea agreement that spawned two counties, that sentence is to be served consecutively to a 36-month prison term Tyler Lee received last month in Putnam County on an unrelated drug charge.
Lee was indicted in Allen County earlier this year on charges of robbery, kidnapping and extortion in connection with the Feb. 4, 2018, robbery of former UNOH student James Featherstone. In October he agreed to plead guilty to the robbery charge, a second-degree felony, and the third-degree felony count of extortion.
Lee, 22, of Lima, who could spend up to nine years behind bars for the assortment of crimes spread over two counties, told the court on Monday that he played almost no role at all the incident involving the UNOH student.
