Craigslist gunman who shot a man in the face sentenced

Gunman in Craigslist case to do 14 years:

A year and a half ago I posted about a craigslist robbery in Trotwood, Ohio. In that robbery the victim was literally shot in the face, through his jaw if memory serves me correctly. Thankfully the victim survived.

At that time there wasn’t a lot of details that was until now. Last week the gunman, Keron Simpson, was sentenced to 14 years for the robbery and the shooting. That’s in addition to his 33 to life sentence for another robbery and a fatal shooting.

The victim got the opportunity to address Simpson at the sentencing and took full advantage of it…

That victim, Chris Voudris, was in the Montgomery County Common Pleas courtroom during the sentencing hearing on Wednesday and asked Simpson to “look me in the eye.” He told Simpson that “soon you will be nothing to society but a number” the rest of his life, an allusion to his future as a prison inmate.

In case you needed another reason not to do business on craigslist this should be it.
