    SYRACUSE, NY — Anthony Stewart, a 15-year-old boy from Onondaga County was sentenced to two years in a juvenile facility for robbing a 73-year-old man for 7 cents with a bb-gun.

    The judge refused to try Stewart as a youthful offender because Stewart denied the robbery.

    The Huffington Post reports:

    Unlike Stewart, his accomplice, Skyler Ninham, 16, pleaded guilty and was sentenced as a youthful offender, according to Syracuse.com. He’ll serve a minimum of one year at a state prison.

    According to Newser, the boys ran up to a 73-year-old man, punched him in the face, breaking his glasses, and robbed him of 7 cents — all the money he had in his pockets.
