Macon, Georgia, man sentenced to life for $1 armed robbery

A 23-year-old Macon man was sentenced Thursday to life in prison for his part in robbing a man of $1 at gunpoint in 2010, according to the Bibb County District Attorney’s Office.

Dexter Hogan, of Hall Street, was convicted of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime following a trial in Bibb County Superior Court, said District Attorney Greg Winters.

Hogan and 28-year-old Charles Ottman robbed a customer of the KwikTrip convenience store at 1924 Forsyth St. on Aug. 26, 2010. A gun was pulled and $1 was taken, Winters said.

Ottman pleaded guilty to armed robbery in March and was sentenced to serve 10 years in prison and 10 years on probation, he said.
