A Cary man charged in a string of armed robberies in Cary, Waukegan and Elgin has been sentenced to 15 years in prison following a plea deal on Friday.
The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office said on Tuesday that Cordelle J. Miller, 28, of Cary, plead guilty to armed robbery, which is a class X felony, during a negotiated plea deal. Miller was sentenced to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections by Judge Robert A. Wilbrandt. Miller.
McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick D. Kenneally said that on March 6, 2014, Miller was armed with a gun and entered a 7-Eleven convenience store in Cary. He threatened the employee and took money during the robbery.
Miller was also charged in three other armed robberies, one of which happened on the same day in Elgin at a dress shop. Police said that Miller entered the store in the 1200 block of Dundee Avenue in Elgin around 7 p.m. and displayed a handgun before taking money from the cash register and a cellphone.
5 days later, Miller robbed S&D Mini Mart and Supoermercado Zapopan at gunpoint in Waukegan. Cordelle Miller’s wife, Jessica Miller, was identified as the getaway driver in the robberies and also charged.
