Tallahassee, FL - Senior Judge Stewart Parsons sentenced a 20-year-old Tallahassee man, Kalvin Youman, to a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison under the Florida Prison Releasee Reoffender law on the charge of Robbery. Mr. Youman qualified as a Prison Releasee Reoffender since he committed this crime within 3 years of being released from prison on another violent felony, Aggravated Battery.

For this robbery, Mr. Youman had been found guilty as charged by a jury back on August 24, 2010. Mr. Youman robbed a 23-year-old man who he and another co-defendant gave a ride to during the early morning hours of June 16, 2008, near Old Bainbridge Road.

The victim accepted the ride and after making a stop to purchase beer, Mr. Youman suddenly grabbed the victim in a choke hold and he and the co-defendant forcefully removed the man’s shoes and pants. In his pants, the victim had $73 in U.S. Currency, a cell phone and his wallet with identification. After robbing him, the two defendants left the man on the side of the road in his boxer shorts and socks. Police located Mr. Youman and his co-defendant and found the victim’s money inside their residence. The victim’s other belongings were found in a nearby dumpster.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Mike Bauer. Mr. Youman was represented by Attorney Adam Ruiz. Mr. Youman has 30 days to file an appeal for any illegality of his sentence.

    Dang, that comment about the stupid hair was great! Could not have said it better myself. This guy is a waste of space and a waste of the time it takes me to even type this comment. What an absolute degenerate.

    Hopefully he was taken out of the pool before he was able to breed. Does this hair style have a name? If not, I like "The Medusa".

    Hopefully he'll get a cell mate that really, really likes what he has done with his hair... They can be "partners" for the next 15 years.
