CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to 17 years in prison on robbery and firearms charges.

Prosecutors said 33-year-old Benjamin Hugron of Concord walked into a restaurant in Penacook in August 2013, pointed a gun at the cashier, demanded money, and walked away with more than $300.

A week later, prosecutors said he entered a convenience store in the same area and demanded money at gunpoint, leaving with about $400 and merchandise.

Prosecutors said at the time of the robberies, Hugron was on supervised release for a 2007 federal conviction, also for two robberies in New Hampshire.

He was sentenced Monday in federal court.
