NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A judicial district judge in Nacogdoches sentenced a 34-year-old man to 75 years in prison Wednesday morning for trying to rob three people at gunpoint on April 10, 2012.

Michael Shemond White, of Nacogdoches, appeared in Judge Campbell Cox's 145th Judicial District Court for a sentencing hearing. On May 15, a Nacogdoches County jury found White guilty of three counts of aggravated robbery.

The jury handed down the verdict after a three-day trial in mid-May.

According to the police report, officers responded to the 100 block of Dutch Street at approximately 3:33 p.m. on April 10, 2012 after a person later identified as White confronted three people.

The victims said White demanded money from them after he showed a pistol to them. Nacogdoches Police officers managed to track White down several blocks away, and one of the victims identified him as the person who tried to rob them.

The report did not say if White took anything from the victims or if anything was recovered when he was arrested.
