BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - An armed robbery conviction will send a Beloit man to prison for 39 years.
Christopher Dawson was convicted last October of breaking into the home of an elderly couple in November 2010 along with three other suspects.
Prosecutors say she and the others tied up the victims and pushed them down the stairs. Dawson then covered the woman’s head and told her she and her husband were going to die.
The suspects reportedly stole money, a coin collection and a Green Bay Packers ring.
The 21 year old Dawson was convicted of armed robbery, armed burglary with a dangerous weapon, two counts of battery to an elderly person and intimidating a witness.
