KEENE, N.H. (AP) -- A Sullivan, N.H., man who pleaded guilty to taking part in the robbery of a Keene taxi driver last year has been sentenced to two to six years in prison.
Twenty-one-year-old William Broussard pleaded guilty Dec. 4 in Cheshire County Superior Court to one count each of accomplice to armed robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery in the April 2008 holdup.
Broussard also pleaded guilty to issuing bad checks and violating his probation on a prior conviction for receiving a stolen spool of copper.
Broussard was given credit for the 301 days he spent at the Cheshire County jail in Westmoreland awaiting a resolution in his case. He can enroll in a long-term residential drug treatment program after serving six months, and the remainder of his sentence would be suspended.
Another man charged in the case, 19-year-old Killian Bryant, pleaded guilty last year to armed robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and witness tampering. He was sentenced to 2 1/2 to six years in prison.
