Virginia teenager sentenced to 97 years in prison for robberies

A Norfolk, Va. teenager was sentenced to nearly one century in prison after he was convicted in connection with robberies in Virginia Beach and in North Carolina.

Raymond Lewis Perry, 19, received the 97-year sentence Monday in federal court, the Associated Press reported.

Perry was convicted in June on charges of conspiracy to interfere with commerce by means of robbery, three counts of interference with commerce by means of robbery, and four counts of using a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence, according to the AP.

The robberies occurred in September 2010 at a pizzeria, convenience store and gas station in Virginia Beach, and two grocery stores in Gates County, North Carolina.
