Rob Pharmacies, Go To Prison
A Tomah man will spend the next 20 months in prison sentence after he held up four Madison area pharmacies earlier this year. 35 year old Jesse Kirk received his federal sentence earlier this week.
Prosecutors proved that Kirk went on a 10 day, four pharmacy robbery spree in April. In court, they sad Kirk took various types of controlled substances, such as OxyContin, during the robberies.
A judge said a prison term was necessary due to the severity of the conduct and threats of violence made during the holdups. The judge also said the robberies stemmed from Kirk's drug addictions.
