PLYMOUTH – A Bristol man has been sentenced to a decade behind bars for committing a robbery in Plymouth.
Kelly Nixon, 31, faced sentencing last week in New Britain Superior Court after previously taking a plea deal.
According to judicial records, Nixon’s 10-year prison term will be followed by five years of special parole.
Nixon was first arrested in October 2020 after both state and Manchester police found him in the attic loft of an apartment in Ashford. Authorities had to force entry into the building after he refused to come out, according to police. Nixon was captured after falling from a ceiling crawl space, police said.
At the time of his arrest, authorities said Nixon was suspected of committing numerous robberies throughout the state, including one in Plymouth.
Last month, Nixon pleaded guilty to one count of attempted first-degree robbery – a felony. The charge stems from a robbery reported in Plymouth on Oct. 19, 2020. He was not charged in that robbery until last September.
