JEFFERSON COUNTY — A 19-year-old Centralia man was sentenced earlier this month in Jefferson County Court to six years in prison after he pleaded guilty to the April 2019 robbery of a Mt. Vernon gas station.

Kiandrea Donald pleaded guilty earlier this month to Class 1 felony aggravated robbery by indicating a firearm. He was facing between 4 and 15 years had the case gone to trial.

At the time of his arrest in the case, Donald was being held in Juvenile Detention stemming from a juvenile conviction in Marion County.

He was a juvenile at the time of the robbery of the Mt. Vernon Huck’s gas station but was charged as an adult.

He pleaded guilty in Jefferson County Court to the early morning robbery on April 13, 2019, of Huck’s in the 3300 block of Broadway.

Mt. Vernon police responded to a report of two black males who had reportedly entered the business, with one of them possibly armed with a firearm.

The offenders allegedly took an undetermined amount of money and also took an employee’s keys before fleeing.

In addition to the six-year prison sentence, Donald was ordered to pay nearly $158 in restitution.
