Man Beats Elderly WWII Veteran, Pays Big Time

In Bluewell, West Virginia, Joshua Short, 35, pleaded guilty to taking part in two armed robberies. He was given a 50-year prison sentence on Nov. 2 by Judge Derek Swope.

This is the longest sentence Swope could have given for two crimes of first-degree armed robbery. He ruled that each offense be carried consecutively.

Short and Larry Patrick Jr. reportedly broke into the home of an elderly WWII veteran on Oct. 16, attacked him. He also stole a .38 caliber handgun. Short was also involved two days later in robbing the Arrowhead Delhi at gunpoint. Short allegedly fired a shot during the incident, before removing the cash register from the store.

Ali, the store owner, said, "This is the second time, and we believe it's by the same person. The way he acts, the way he was coming, we believe it's the same person. He came with the gun and told the clerks you know the routine."
