A Kansas City man convicted of conspiracy to commit armed robbery was sentenced Wednesday to 11 years in federal prison.
Jamal L. Vassie, 27, was one of four men charged in U.S. District Court in 2013 after several robberies, including an armed carjacking at a Kansas City car wash.
In August, a jury found Vassie guilty of conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery and use of a firearm during a crime of violence.
According to court documents, Vassie and two of the other men charged in the federal case were allegedly involved in a number of robberies and carjackings.
Vassie was previously convicted of robbing a pizza restaurant and had been paroled four months before his 2013 arrest, according to federal prosecutors.
