Pete White Sentenced In Liquor Store Robbery Case
A Casper man is heading to prison for his involvement in an armed robbery earlier this year.
Thirty-year old Pete White was sentenced to 13-to-15 years at the Wyoming State Penitentiary, after entering an Alford plea to one charge of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery.
Police say in April, 20-year-old Shannon Mares and 20-year-old Arthur Brown robbed moonlight liquor on East 12th Street at gunpoint, then went to White’s home a few blocks away, where they were given a change of clothing and a ride home by White.
Brown was arrested a week later on an unrelated shoplifting incident.
Eventually, prosecutors say he and Mares admitted to their roles in the robbery and said White gave them a handgun.
White admitted to officers that he provided transportation to Brown and Mares on different occasions, and that the other two were at his home before and after the robbery, but did not know about it until later, and denied having any connection to the weapon used.
This is White's third felony conviction.
