One of three accused of Mason City home robbery sentenced to ten years in prison
MASON CITY — One of the three suspects that was part of a home robbery in Mason City in late December has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The robbery happened late on the night of December 27th at a home in the 800 block of 8th Northeast, with an adult female resident saying three males forced their way into her home, with one suspect holding her down while the other two stole items from the home. Police say the victim was strangled by her attacker, lost consciousness and was also threatened that she would be stabbed.
17-year-old Camden Nicholson of Moody Alabama and 17-year-old Joseph Jaskiel of Mason City were both charged with first-degree robbery, but both pleaded guilty in April to a charge of second-degree robbery.
On Monday, Jaskiel was sentenced by District Judge James Drew to ten years in prison and was given a $1000 suspended fine. Nicholson back in late May was given the exact same sentence.
The third suspect, 16-year-old Mateo Ochoa, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree robbery and is scheduled to be tried on August 27th.
