Gunman in Craigslist case to do 14 years

A man convicted of shooting and robbing another man during what was supposed to be a sales transaction based on a Craigslist ad was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in prison.

Keron Simpson was sentenced to  11 years on two theft counts and single counts of aggravated robbery and felonious assault. He also was sentenced to an additional three years for having a gun as a felon.

The judge ordered Simpson to serve the 14 years in addition to the 33 years to life he has been sentenced to for his part in a robbery and deadly shooting at a bootleg joint on Germantown Pike in Dayton.

In the Craigslist incident, Simpson shot a man in the face on Christmas Eve 2011 after meeting the man in Trotwood to buy a dirt bike that had been for sale on Craigslist, according to court documents.

That victim, Chris Voudris, was in the Montgomery County Common Pleas courtroom during the sentencing hearing on Wednesday and asked Simpson to “look me in the eye.” He told Simpson that “soon you will be nothing to society but a number” the rest of his life, an allusion to his future as a  prison inmate.

It will be 47 years before Simpson goes before a parole board, Lynda Ashbery-Dodd, an assistant Montgomery County prosecutor, told News Center 7.

She said the case serves as a good example and warning for people who want to see items using the Internet.

“When you sell something, buy something, from Craigslist or some similar service, you don’t know who the other person is you’re dealing with,” Ashbery-Dodd said. “ If you can’t arrange with someone to do it safely,  no property is worth that risk.”
