STANFORD – Two defendants who pleaded guilty to a 2017 armed robbery in Hustonville have been sentenced to prison terms by a Lincoln County Circuit Court Judge. A third defendant is expected to be sentenced later this month.

Cynara T. Davis, 27, of Stanford, and Timothy O. Johnson, 32, of Danville, have been sentenced to prison for their involvement in the robbery, which occurred in Dec. 2017 at a residence on McCoy Drive in Hustonville.

Johnson pleaded guilty to burglary and robbery and was sentenced April 27 to serve six years in prison by Lincoln County Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Burdette.

Davis pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced June 22 to serve three-and-a-half years in prison for her involvement.

The third defendant, 37-year-old Ronnie Rogers, of Junction City, pleaded guilty to burglary on Sept. 28. Rogers’ sentencing is set for Oct. 26.

According to The Interior Journal news archives, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the residence on McCoy Drive last year where they found two male victims who had been injured during the robbery.

The victims told deputies that Rogers, who neither of them knew, was first to enter the home. Rogers sat down on the couch and told them he was waiting on their roommate. A few minutes later, Johnson entered the home and locked the door behind him.

The two then pulled out knives and took the victims’ cell phones and wallets before a struggle ensued. One victim was rendered unconscious and awoke to find Rogers and Johnson running from the home with a TV, an X-BOX, wallets, phones and money, deputies said.

Deputies later located and interrogated Davis, who had picked Rogers and Johnson up from the home following the robbery and dropped them off at her apartment in Stanford.

Rogers and Johnson were attempting to leave the apartment complex parking lot when deputies stopped their vehicle and found them in possession of the stolen wallets and cell phones.

Rogers is expected to serve five years in prison, according to a news release from Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Neal Tucker.

“The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office did a great job investigating and solving this case,” Tucker said.
