Bryan K. Gambill, 28, whose last known address was 20 Carty St., entered a no contest plea Tuesday and was found guilty of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony with a firearm specification.
Gambill was accused of robbing the station attendant May 24, 2010, and faced a possible sentence of 13 years, but by entering a no contest plea, the sentence was set at six years.
The day after authorities said he robbed the gas station, he reportedly robbed the PNC Bank in Heath, Ohio, of $18,939.
On June 4, Licking County Crime Stoppers received a tip identifying Gambill as the robbery suspect and he was picked up on warrant that month by Scioto County law enforcement at Walmart in New Boston.
In December, he was sentenced to nine years in prison after pleading no contest in that robbery. That sentence could have ballooned to 22 years had he received the maximum sentence for the Newark robbery.
While in jail awaiting trial, Gambill twice attempted suicide. In one incident, Licking County Assistant Prosecutor Dan Huston said Gambill swallowed a razor blade.landpublications.com.
