"Career Criminal" Sentenced to Prison for Robbery
DAYTON -- Mickey Allen Fugate Jr, 40, of Dayton was sentenced in U.S. District Court to serve 25 years in prison for an armed robbery he committed in 2009 and an additional 50 months in prison for committing the robbery while on supervised release for earlier federal crimes.
Fugate pleaded guilty Aug. 28 to one count of interference with interstate commerce by threats or violence (Hobbs Act) and one count of possession of a firearm following three or more violent felony convictions, (Armed Career Criminal Act).
According to court records, Fugate in November 2009 robbed at gunpoint the Kwik-N-Kold convenience store on Wyoming Street in Dayton. During the robbery, Fugate reportedly shot a male store clerk. The bullet fired at the male clerk struck the victim in the right arm, traveled through his chest cavity, and punctured his right lung, resulting in permanent loss of a portion of the lung. Fugate stole a cash register tray and plastic tip jar and about $465 in cash. Fugate led two citizens who followed him as he fled the robbery in a chase throughout the surrounding area, during which he brandished and discharged a firearm.
Dayton Police officers recovered the cash register tray, tip jar, $168 cash, and the Smith & Wesson handgun reportedly used during the robbery from the residence to which Fugate fled.
At the time of the robbery, court record indicate, Fugate was on supervised release after serving time in federal prison for armed bank robbery and use of a firearm in a crime of violence and a separate federal charge of attempted escape. He also had two prior Ohio burglary convictions, for which he also served prison terms.
The offense conduct is all the more disturbing in light of Fugates history, which places this offense as only the most recent in a string of violent offenses committed by Fugate, Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Young wrote.
