Courts: Man facing 10 years after casino robbery

CLINTON — An 18-year-old man could face as much as 10 years in prison in connection with an Aug. 27 robbery of a man at Wild Rose Casino and Resort.

Dylon White pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree robbery, a lesser included charge of the original first-degree robbery charge. A class C felony, the charge carries as much as 10 years in prison.

Because it is a forceable felony, he will have to serve some prison and could be required to serve seven years before being eligible for parole.

According to court documents, White and Destin Clark, 18, of Neenah, Wis., approached a 36-year-old Illinois man in the area of the Clinton Lawn Cemetery. The victim was then taken to the Wild Rose lobby at gunpoint and forced to withdraw money out of his account from the ATM.

White admitted in court Thursday to being aware of the plan to rob the man and the fact that Clark had a weapon. He added that his job was to back up Clark and serve as look-out for any police.

Upon the prompting of his attorney Bruce Ingham, White said he did have the intent to commit the theft.

A sentencing date was set for 9:30 a.m. Jan. 9 At that time, the state is expected to dismiss a charge of first-degree theft.

Clark was sentenced Dec. 5 for the same charge and was ordered to serve as much as 10 years with the Iowa Department of Corrections. He will be required to serve 70 percent of the sentence, or seven years. The original charge of robbery in the first degree is a Class B felony, carrying as much as 25 years in prison.
