Sentencing is scheduled Tuesday for an Alabama man convicted of aggravated robbery and burglary in Lyon County.
Jacob Paul Perry broke into a house near BETO Junction, robbing a person at gunpoint on Jan. 17. He also stole a truck near Reading at gunpoint before leading a chase towards Emporia. Perry agreed to a plea of no contest back in June. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m.
In addition, Perry also is being arraigned in Coffey County this week on charges of aggravated robbery and kidnapping. That hearing will take place Thursday at 9 a.m.
