The second of three defendants charged in the August 2010 robbery of a Cumberland County man has entered a guilty plea in Criminal Court, but escaped prison time with credit for time served and a suspended sentence.
Robert Ray Spagnolo, 25, who listed a Harriman address when arrested, was facing charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and criminal conspiracy. He pleaded guilty to criminal conspiracy and received credit for time served from Aug. 22, 2010 to April 19, 2011, and received a three-year suspended sentence to be served on supervised probation.
Spagnolo, Justin Daniel Wilson and Jacqueline Susan Moore, also known as Hall, were accused of luring a Cumberland County man to a Pleasant Hill area parking lot where the victim was assaulted and his cellphone, jewelry and cash were taken at knifepoint.
The victim was not seriously injured.
