A Shelby County jury found Kenneth W. Chandler Jr. of Shelbyville guilty Tuesday of seven counts of robbery and recommended 10 years in prison.
Chandler, dubbed the "Hoodie Bandit," robbed seven area businesses last year that spanned Shelby and Jefferson counties, including the Dollar General Store, a Shell service station, Pizza Hut and Subway.
The jury deliberated only three hours to find Chandler guilty of first-degree robbery in six of the crimes and second-degree robbery in the seventh.
