Gerald Jako, an Ohio County man found guilty of robbery in the first degree of the Stateline Cafe in Valley Grove, was sentenced to 100 years yesterday by Judge Jason Cuomo..

According to surveillance video and testimony, Jako and two others robbed the business with guns and a machete, and tied up the cashier with zip ties before leaving with money and cigarettes.

Cuomo said Jako has committed several crimes and acts of violence against jail staff since being arrested.

Jako said that he will exercise his right to appeal.
