DeForest Man Sentenced For Robberies

MADISON, WIS. --John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Ryan Coyle, 25, DeForest, Wis., was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman to 27 months in federal prison, followed by a three-year term of supervised release, for robbing Klinke's Cleaners, Madison, on October 8, 2013. Coyle pleaded guilty to this charge on March 7, 2014.

As part of Coyle’s plea agreement, two additional charges involving robberies of Klinke’s were dismissed.  Those robberies occurred on November 19, 2013 and November 27, 2013.  However, Coyle was ordered to pay restitution for all three robberies.  Judge Adelman also considered the two additional robberies when choosing a 27-month sentence.

Coyle was arrested on December 5, 2013.  In a statement to the police, Coyle said he committed the robberies to support his heroin addiction.

The charge against Coyle was the result of an investigation conducted by the Madison Police Department.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rita M. Rumbelow.
