PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi officials say an Alabama man will spend 20 years in prison for the December 2011 armed robberies of two checking cashing businesses, one in Moss Point and the other in Pascagoula.

Jackson County Assistant District Attorney Cherie Wade tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1hOECsC ) 31-year-old Robert Lee Stone, of Mobile, Ala., pleaded guilty to two charges of armed robbery Wednesday. Senior Circuit Judge Kathy King Jackson also ordered him to pay a $2,000 fine, $100 to the Crime Victims Compensation Fund and restitution to the victims.

Wade says Stone entered the businesses with a firearm and demanded cash, then fled.
