Macy Man Sentenced for Robbery Conviction

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Cory Woodhull, age 25 of Macy, Nebraska, was sentenced for his conviction for robbery in Indian Country.  Chief United States District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Woodhull to 40 months imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release.  Woodhull was further ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $750.

Woodhull found his victim sitting in a snow bank and unable to make it to his residence following a New Year’s Eve party.  Woodhull assisted the victim to his home but, once inside, Woodhull beat and kicked the victim while demanding the PIN to the victim’s food stamp card.  Woodhull eventually took the victim’s food stamp card and a DVD collection and left the residence.  The victim suffered serious bodily injuries and was unable to move about his residence for approximately three days after the assault.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
