A Lufkin man who nearly beat a hitchhiker to death last year has been found guilty of aggravated robbery. A jury sentenced Charles Stribling to 20 years in prison.
Stribling and his girlfriend picked Gore up on a highway. In just two days, Stribling had Gore get a cell phone and car insurance in his name.
Sonya Moye is also charged with Gore's beating, but she testified against Stribling Thursday.
