12-year term imposed in robbery of deliveryman

A Riley Street man with a lengthy criminal record was sentenced Friday to 12 years in state prison.

Samuel Wynn, 38, was convicted earlier this month of second-degree robbery in the armed robbery of a pizza deliveryman Aug. 30, 2005, down the block from his home.

Prosecutors had considered recommending a life term for Wynn as a persistent violent felon, but that wasn't pursued.

Erie County Judge Timothy J. Drury, however, listed Wynn's run-ins with the law before sentencing him.

Between 1993 and 2002, Wynn was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, misdemeanor assault and criminal possession of stolen property.

He violated his probation or parole four times.
