Prison ordered in Craigslist robbery case

A robber who used a Craigslist ad to set up victims was sentenced Tuesday to 19 years in prison.

Derrick L. Johnson, 20, was sentenced in Jackson County Circuit Court, where a jury in January found him guilty of multiple counts of robbery, kidnapping and armed criminal action.

The robbery victims had answered an online ad in 2012 about a car for sale when Johnson robbed them at gunpoint.
