NORFOLK -- Two men have been sentenced for robbing seven 7-Elevens in the cities of Norfolk, Chesapeake, Hampton and Newport News last year.
Ronald Randolph McKinney, 22, was sentenced to 17 years and one month in prison, followed by five years of supervised release and 20-year-old Anthony Deshaune Lewis was sentenced to 15 years and four months in prison, followed by five years of supervised release.
Both men pleaded guilty in April.
Prosecutors say McKinney and Lewis alternated roles during the spree. McKinney was the gunman during four robberies while Lewis drove the getaway car. Lewis was the gunman during three robberies in which McKinney drove the getaway vehicle.
McKinney was positively identified by victims in the two Norfolk robberies he committed.
Lewis was identified by the victims from one Hampton robbery and one in Newport News.
