3 years for woman driving getaway
A New Hampshire woman has been sentenced to three years in prison after she pleaded guilty to being the getaway driver in a violent robbery at Kay Jewelers in Tilton last November.
Shyloe Piper Johnson, 25, of Sanbornton pleaded guilty in May to being the getaway driver in the jewelry store robbery and being the lookout in the robbery of the Northeast Credit Union in Manchester.
Three men wearing masks from the movie Scream threatened customers with a gun and smashed jewelry cases with a hammer, making off with more than $200,000 in merchandise from the jewelry store.
Johnson's former boyfriend, Walter Williams of Compton, Ca., pleaded guilty to both robberies but has not yet been sentenced. Another man also pleaded guilty; the third is awaiting trial.
