Suspect in TA Travel Center robbery and shooting sentenced
An Anderson man was sentenced to three years probation on Tuesday for the robbery and shooting at the TA Travel Center near Redding.
28-year-old Jerome Bugarin was sentenced to three years formal probation and 180 days of community service. He will also face five years in a state prison if probation is violated.
Bugarin was arrested along with 22-year-old Darryl Jernigan, 21-year-old Deshawn Young-Dabney and 28-year-old Billy Benjamin for the robbery and shooting that took place in June.
Deputies said Jernigan, Young-Dabney and Bugarin pretended to be selling $10,000 worth of prescription pain medication at the truck stop and planned to rob the alleged buyers.
During the robbery, shots were fired, and a bystander was shot.
All four suspects were charged with attempted murder, attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit a felony, and kidnapping. Young-Dabney also faced a charge of assault with a firearm.
Jernigan was sentenced back in April to 10 years in a state prison. His request for probation was denied.
Young-Dabney will be sentenced on July 9 and Benjamin will be back in court on June 19 for sentencing.
