WARREN — A Warren man was sentenced Monday to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty to two of three aggravated robbery charges.

Jeremiah U. Jones, 20, of Warren, was convicted in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court in the October 2017 robbery of a USA Taxi driver in which two men jumped into the vehicle seeking rides to Highland Terrace. When the cab driver refused to take them, he was hit in the head and robbed, according to a police report.

Jones also pleaded guilty before Judge Peter Kontos to his involvement in a June 2018 robbery of jewelry from a woman in Howland. The woman met Jones and two others to sell a gun, according to a police report. The woman was shot in the leg. Jones pleaded guilty June 17 before Judge W. Wyatt McKay to an October 2017 robbery. In each of these plea agreements, Jones was sentenced to six years in prison, which are to be served consecutively, court records show.
