Man gets 12 years for 2005 robbery

MAYVILLE -- Kyle E. Miller, 26, of Westons Mills, was sentenced Monday in Cattaraugus County Court to 12 years in prison on his conviction of first-degree robbery by a county jury.

District Attorney Edward M. Sharkey said Miller, who was sentenced as a second felony offender, was also sentenced to a concurrent seven-year prison term for second-degree robbery. He will also be subject to a five-year period of post-release supervision when he is released from prison, where he will be required to serve the large majority of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.

Sharkey said the robbery occurred Oct. 31, 2005, when Miller and two other defendants forcibly took money from the cash register at the UniMart on Wayne Street in the City of Olean by threatening the clerk with a knife.
