Pittsburg, Texas (KETK) — An Arizona man previously charged with two armed robberies and a school fire in East Texas has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
According to the Camp County District Attorney's Office, Steven Marlin Schade, 45, pled guilty about two weeks ago on two counts of aggravated robbery. A charge of arson connected to an alleged school fire was dropped due to lack of sufficient evidence. He was sentenced this week to 20 years in jail.
Schade was arrested the night of January 15 for holding up two gas stations at gunpoint.
The suspect still faces two warrants for his arrest in Utah. Schade must serve 10 years before he is eligible for parole.
