Man pleads guilty to three felonies

The Spokesman-Review
 

A Spokane man who prosecutors say helped a mother and daughter beat and rob a man last fall pleaded guilty to three felonies Tuesday but was given an extra week before sentencing to allow him to say goodbye to his family.

Prosecutors will recommend Robert L. Hensley, 21 and a four-time felon, receive nearly five years in prison for the Nov. 29 kidnapping, robbery and beating of Jeremy Brotherton.

Brotherton was working at Denny’s in Spokane Valley when Hensley and, allegedly, Alisson D. Taylor, 34, and Breeanna C. Sims, 18, picked him up and said they had money Taylor owed him. Hensley assaulted Brotherton, then stole his cash.

Taylor devised the plan and recruited Hensley as “the muscle,” Deputy Prosecutor Larry Haskell said Tuesday.

Sims and Taylor are set to go to trial in June.
