MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — A man was sentenced to life in prison after he was found guilty of robbery.
A jury found Herbert Hosea guilty of Robbery in the First Degree for a crime that happened at Family Dollar at N. Broad Street. Hosea walked into the store and robbed the clerk at gunpoint Nov. 20, 2018.
Hosea fled the scene but dropped a bandana near the store’s entrance. DNA testing on the bandana matched Hosea’s, and he was later arrested.
Hosea “has several prior convictions, including two Robbery First convictions,” according to a Facebook post from the Mobile County District Attorney’s Office.
Due to his priors, Hosea will be sentenced to life without parole.
