OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been sentenced to 71 years in federal prison in connection with seven robberies in the summer of 2014.

The Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/291bH4O ) reports that 26-year-old Emmanuel Chaplain was found guilty in March of seven counts of interference with commerce by means of robbery, three counts of using or possessing a firearm and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Chaplain to 14 years for the robberies and another 57 years on the gun charges.

Chaplain used a firearm during three of the seven robberies. Forensic evidence showed a bandana in a car that Chaplain was riding in on June 23 matched his DNA. Police also found video game boxes at a store with Chaplain’s fingerprints on them.
