Judge grants probation in Hastings robbery case

RICHMOND — A man who was sentenced Friday to five years in prison on a robbery charge was granted probation by Madison Circuit Court Judge William G. Clouse.

Nicholas Masden, 19, pleaded guilty to second-degree robbery at an earlier hearing, and the state recommended a sentence of five years in prison.

Masden’s maximum sentence could have been 10 years.

Masden has served 70 days in jail already.

After hearing from Masden’s attorney and the prosecution, Clouse decided to grant Masden supervised probation for five years.

The quick-thinking victim in the case was able to catch the license plate number of the vehicle Masden was riding in when the man approached him in the parking lot of Hastings in Richmond Centre on Nov. 17 and implied he had a gun in his pocket.

Masden took the victim’s iPad and $11 in cash, according to a Richmond police report.

Officers were able to trace the car to its owner, and it was found outside an empty Keri Ann Drive residence.

Masden later returned to the home, and after being detained by police, the stolen iPad was found in the house, according to the RPD.

Also sentenced Friday in Madison Circuit Court were:

• Mitchell Peters, 29, receiving stolen property (under $10,000), one year.
