Habitual Felony Offender Sentenced

Today Richard Dickman was sentenced as a Habitual Felony Offender to 15 years
in prison for one count of Robbery and one count of False Imprisonment in
Charlotte County.

Dickman robbed a Circle K just after midnight in May 2017. He claimed to have a
gun under his shirt and demanded the teller give him all the money in the cash
drawer. The defendant then made the clerk go into the bathroom, took his
cellphone, and told him to stay there for ten minutes. When the clerk came out,
Dickman was gone.

He was identified by a surveillance video from the store which showed a tattoo on
his neck. There was also a sweatshirt recovered near the store that matched the one
seen in the surveillance video being worn by the robber. Dickman’s DNA was
found on the sweatshirt.

Assistant State Attorney Garrick Soja handled the case.
