City man gets 8-year prison term for January pizza-driver robbery

YOUNGSTOWN — A 19-year-old has been sentenced to eight years in prison for robbing a pizza-delivery man at gunpoint Jan. 3 on the city’s West Side.

Fabian Bellard, who listed addresses on Eastway Drive and Kendis Circle, drew the sentence today from Judge R. Scott Krichbaum of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Bellard had earlier pleaded guilty as charged to aggravated robbery with a firearm specification, carrying a concealed weapon when he was arrested Jan. 12, and two counts of being a convicted felon in illegal possession of a gun, pertaining to Jan. 3 and Jan. 12.

Bellard was disqualified from gun possession by a February 2009 robbery adjudication in juvenile court, according to the indictment.
