A 22-year-old Bucks County man was sentenced to three to six years in state prison for the armed robbery of a man lured into the crime by a stripper, prosecutors said.
James Valentine Jr., of Mitchell Road in Levittown, was convicted by a jury last month of robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, and related offenses.
The victim, a young man from New Jersey, was allegedly targeted on Sept. 11, 2016, by a dancer, Brandy Wells, at the Sugar N Spice club in Morrisville. The robbery occurred at the Green Lane Apartments in Bristol Township. The victim was grabbed by Wells’s boyfriend, James Hunt, while Valentine held a gun to his head.
Hunt is awaiting sentencing. Wells failed to appear for trial and is being sought on a bench warrant.
