Man pleads guilty in robbery

The man who robbed off-duty law enforcement officers while they were in Baltimore to attend the funeral of Detective Troy L. Chesley Sr. on Jan. 16 pleaded guilty yesterday to armed robbery and using a handgun while committing a crime of violence.

Jean Sierra, 21, of Owings Mills, was sentenced to eight years in prison, the first five to be served without the possibility of parole. Sierra admitted to robbing an agent with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and a Virginia state trooper as they left Canton's busy bar and restaurant area of O'Donnell Square around closing time the morning of the funeral.
