TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A central New Jersey man who shot a cab driver and committed several armed robberies during a 24-hour crime spree has been sentenced to 23 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 24-year-old Quam Wilson of Neptune will start serving the sentence imposed Wednesday after he completes an eight-year state prison term he’s now serving. He also will have to pay restitution.

Wilson’s crime spree in November 2012 began when he shot and robbed a taxi driver in Asbury Park, then robbed a gas station attendant in neighboring Ocean Township. A few hours later, Wilson went to several area banks and tried to withdraw money from the driver’s account.

Prosecutors say the spree also involved robberies at a series of Monmouth County businesses, including a taxi stand and a convenience store.
