A Utah State Prison inmate had another prison term added onto the several he is already serving after pleading guilty Tuesday in 2nd District Court to holding up a Bountiful restaurant last fall.
Richard L. Campbell, 32, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of robbery, a second-degree felony, in the Nov. 18 holdup of the Hardee's restaurant, which netted him $230.Campbell was charged with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony that carries a prison term of five years to life. The reduced charge of robbery is a second-degree felony, with a term of one to 15 years.
Judge Rodney S. Page accepted the negotiation and sentenced Campbell, ordering the term to run concurrently with the ones he is serving for similar robberies.
Defense attorney Steve Vanderlinden said Campbell faces at least three more aggravated robbery charges in Salt Lake County and a federal charge for similar holdups around the same time, when he was out on parole.
Prosecutor Carvel Harward said he agreed to the reduction of charge because although Campbell was armed with a handgun, no shots were fired and no one was injured in the robbery.
