LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 28-year-old Las Vegas man has been sentenced to more than 16 years in federal prison for his role in four convenience store robberies within a 30-minute span on April 6, 2012.

Attorney Daniel Bogden says Michael Hall also was ordered to serve five years of supervised release after prison.

Hall pleaded guilty in February to federal robbery and firearm charges.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1wh4GU6 ) that Hall was the getaway driver for the robberies.

Co-defendants Delon Hunter, William Bonaparte and Erica Bowden-Payne all previously pleaded guilty and were sentenced to prison.

Prosecutors say that each time, Hunter pointed a handgun at Bonaparte posing as a customer and demanded money.

The four were arrested after a Las Vegas police officer saw the last robbery in progress.
