CLEVELAND (AP) - A judge has sentenced a man who robbed a Cleveland city bus driver at gunpoint last summer to 14 years in prison.

The judge in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County on Wednesday sentenced 40-year-old Darryl Griffin. He had pleaded guilty in April to one count each of aggravated robbery, kidnapping, disrupting public service and having weapons under disability.

Prosecutors said Griffin got on a city bus just before 4 a.m. on June 26, held a gun to the head of the driver, and took her wallet, checkbook and car keys. After repeated threats and making the driver pass scheduled stops, he ordered the bus stopped and got off.

He was arrested July 8.

The driver told the judge Wednesday that “parts of that day still haunt me.”
