Lancaster County District Judge Jodi Nelson on Wednesday sentenced a man to 15 to 20 years in prison for robbing a Lincoln gas station and a fast food restaurant.

Olando Wilson, 31, pleaded no contest to attempted robbery, terroristic threats and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony for a June 16, 2016, hold-up of the Kwik Shop in Havelock and another a day later at a Taco John's near 27th Street and Cornhusker Highway.

In the Kwik Shop case, police said Wilson grabbed a clerk from behind, implied he had a gun and demanded money.

The next morning, he robbed the Taco John's with a stun gun.

He was on parole at the time.
