Ohio man gets 36 years in prison for series of holdups



Published: Thu, December 6, 2012 @ 11:15 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A judge in central Ohio has slapped a 36-year prison sentence on a man convicted in a series of armed holdups earlier this year.

Christopher P. Blaho apologized to his victims at a hearing Wednesday in a Columbus courtroom.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the 26-year-old Blaho pleaded guilty to 19 robberies and one burglary that occurred from Jan. 18 to Feb. 18.

After hearing from his victims in court, Judge John Bender said the case “cries out for an extensive prison sentence.”

Blaho’s attorney said his client was abusing drugs and alcohol and committed the crimes to feed a heroin addiction. He was living in a minivan while committing the robberies.
