SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The man responsible for shooting a Syracuse liquor store owner in the eye during an armed robbery was sentenced on Wednesday.
Delvon Harley plead guilty in August to second degree attempted murder and two counts of first degree robbery. Tom Dotterer, the owner of the store, was severely injured as a result of the shooting.
During his sentencing on Wednesday, he told the judge he was high on sleeping pills and marijuana when he plead guilty. However, the judge still imposed the 20 year sentence that was agreed to during the plea deal.
Two other accomplices have already been sentenced for their role in the incident.
Emotions were running high Wednesday morning during sentencing for the man who shot a liquor store owner in Syracuse back in January. Delvon Harley agreed to a plea deal last month, but tried to have the plea withdrawn in court Wednesday. That attempt was denied. Instead, Judge Anthony Aloi gave Harley a 20 year prison sentence for attempted murder and robbery. The judge also gave him a strong reprimand in open court.
