Man sentenced for armed robbery

Posted: Updated:

A Baton Rouge man was sentenced to 15 years behind bars for an armed home invasion.

Lawrence Joseph, 29, and an accomplice entered a Walker home, armed with guns, around noon on October 28, 2011.  The suspects stole multiple prescriptions and a cell phone before fleeing.

The victim was able to provide authorities with a description of the getaway car.

When police tried to pull over Joseph, he and his partner-in-crime tossed the stolen items from the car.

Joseph pled no contest to two counts of armed robbery and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon in September 2012.

He will have to serve at least 10 years in prison before he is eligible for parole.
