SALISBURY, Md.- A Wicomico County man has been sentenced to 65 years in prison for an armed robbery in Salisbury last year.

Police say 19-year-old Gerard Dawson Dennis received the maximum sentence for armed robbery, first degree burglary and first degree assault.

Police say in October 2013, Dennis entered a home on Adams Avenue and took cash and a cell phone, and held the victim at gunpoint.

Authorities say Dennis was also sentenced to an additional seven years on a probation violation, which will be served consecutively to the armed robbery sentence.

Police say Dennis had a significant juvenile record as well as a major adult criminal record.

Wicomico County State's Attorney, Matthew A. Maciarello said, “This offender seems dedicated to breaking the laws of our state.” Maciarello added, “The state is thankful that the court handed down this tough sentence to this repeat offender.”
