Cardeilhac sentenced to prison for December robbery in Mitchell

Posted: Updated:
One of two Torrington teens who robbed a Mitchell convenience store at gunpoint in December has been sentenced this afternoon in Scotts Bluff County District Court.

Last month, 15-year-old Dylan Cardeilhac pled guilty to a Class II Felony robbery charge. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dropped a charge of use of a firearm to commit a felony.

Today, District Judge Randall Lippstreu  sentenced Cardeilhac to 8-15 years in prison for his involvement. Lippstreu said that there was no question this crime was premeditated, and doesn't feel Cardeilhac expressed a great deal of remorse for his actions.

Deputy County Attorney Jeremy Anderson also said that there were no justifications for any of Cardeilhac's actions the morning of the robbery, and the victim was traumatized by his actions. 

The Kwik Stop was robbed by two masked individuals on December 3rd at approximately 1:35 a.m. Victor Gonzales was carrying a shotgun, and Cardeilhac had a plastic bag to collect all the money from the cash register.

Cardeilhac bragged about his role on Facebook, and a school resource officer turned him into authorities. Gonzales still remains at large.

He is also facing a 1st Degree Murder charge stemming from the February 14th murder of Scotts Bluff County Corrections Officer Amanda Baker. 16-year-old Guy Eagle Elk is being charged as an accomplice in the case.

A pretrial conference for Cardeilhac for 1st Degree Murder was also held Thursday morning. Defense Attorney Todd Lancaster asked for a continuance in this case; District Judge Travis O'Gorman set a status hearing for August 25th at 9 a.m.

Cardeilhac is accused of strangling Corrections Officer Amanda Baker after luring her into his cell on February 14, 2014. She died several days later as a result of those injuries.
