  • 36-year-old Steven Somerville was sentenced to just over three and a half years in prison for his role in the Aug. 9 burglary of a Dodge City Pizza Hut.
    Somerville took a plea on his initial charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, and counterfeiting; his offenses were amended to burglary to a non-dwelling, felony obstruction, and felony theft with two prior convictions. He plead no contest to the amended charges.
    District Judge Van Hampton sentenced Somerville to serve 34 months for the burglary charge and five months each for the obstruction and theft charges.
    Somerville's charges are the result of an Aug. 9 incident during which he and 22-year-old Adam Nipper, also of Dodge City, confronted employees at the Pizza Hut located at 1513 W. Wyatt Earp with a weapon and demanded cash.
    The pair made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and left the area on foot, according to a news release from the police department.
    Ford County District Court records show Somerville committed the crimes while out on bond for another felony charge. The court also recommended Somerville take part in treatment programs for drug addictions during his sentence.
