WILMINGTON — The second of a pair of gas station robbers has been sentenced to prison.

Levi Cutcher, 56, was sentenced to serve a mandatory 11 years prison sentence on Thursday by Clinton County Common Pleas Judge John “Tim” Rudduck. Cutcher pleaded guilty to two charges of felony 1 aggravated robbery on Monday ; six other charges were dismissed.

Cutcher was given 394 days credited jail time due to him being incarcerated since July 10, 2019.

When given the chance to comment, Cutcher advised he had nothing to say.

Cutcher, along with James Clifton, 61, was charged with three counts of felonious assault, four counts of aggravated robbery, and failure to comply in connection with armed robberies that occurred in June and July 2019 in Clinton County.

The two were apprehended after leading authorities on a vehicle pursuit ending when stop sticks were deployed. Clifton was arrested without incident; Cutcher exited the vehicle, leading authorities on a short foot pursuit.

A shotgun believed to be used in the incidents was located in the vehicle.

While incarcerated at the Clinton County Jail on $100,000 bonds, both Clifton and Cutcher were charged with alleged conspiracy, deadly weapon possession, and attempted escape in November.

Clifton pleaded guilty in January to two aggravated robbery charges and a criminal toll possession charge. He received a mandatory 14-year prison sentence.
