Prison Sentence Given To Armed Robber

A Putnam County man will be spending at least three years in prison, and possibly as many as ten years behind bars for the armed robbery of a store in Bloomington Springs last year. 24-year-old Daniel Landon Jackson was given a sentence of 10 years and six months to serve for robbing the Wildwood Market, but will be eligible for parole after serving one third of that time. Jackson was convicted earlier this year of being one of the two masked men who stole a thousand dollars at gunpoint from Wildwood Market in February of 2008. The other suspect, 21-year-old James Dillon Williams of Cookeville, has already pleaded guilty in the case and received an eight-year prison term.
