RALEIGH — A Raleigh man was sentenced to 146 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release and was ordered to pay $7,590 in restitution in federal court in New Bern on Tuesday.
Antonio Rashaad Dovine, 23, was found guilty of one count of conspiracy to rob a business engaged in interstate commerce, five counts of aiding and abetting the robbery of a business engaged in interstate commerce, one count of attempted robbery of a business engaged in interstate commerce, six counts of aiding and abetting the use of a firearm during a crime of violence and three counts of possession of a firearm by a felon.
Dovine was convicted of a string of robberies from April 14, 2011 to May 3, 2011, in which he and co-conspirators robbed four Raleigh businesses: the Exxon Gas station located at 1200 New Bern Avenue; a McDonalds restaurant at 5106 Spring Forest Road; the Hampton Inn at 1001 Wake Towne Road; and the Courtyard Marriott at 3908 Arrow Drive. Two employees also were assaulted during the robberies.
The court also ruled that Dovine was involved with co-conspirators in the attempted robbery of the Family Fare BP gas station at 2120 New Bern Avenue but fled before taking anything.
