A Shrewsbury man was sentenced to 2 to 5 years in state prison Friday for two robberies earlier last year in Worcester.
Joseph P. Dellolio, 48, of 520 Grafton St., Shrewsbury, pleaded guilty Dec. 29 in Worcester Superior Court to charges of armed robbery, unarmed robbery and possession of a hypodermic needle or syringe.
The robbery charges stemmed from an armed holdup shortly before 12:30 a.m. Feb. 15 at the Honey Farms convenience store at 66 Vernon St. and an unarmed robbery about 20 minutes later at the CVS pharmacy at 500 Grafton St. He was arrested later that day.
Judge John S. McCann accepted Mr. Dellolio’s guilty pleas Dec. 29 and postponed sentencing until yesterday.
The sentence imposed Friday by the judge was recommended by Assistant District Attorney Lawrence J. Murphy and Mr. Dellolio’s lawyer, Kelli Porges, under a plea agreement in the case.
