HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Harrisburg man will spend 12-30 years in prison for robbing a state lawmaker and two others at gunpoint.

Donnie D. Dozier, 42, received the sentence Tuesday as part of a plea agreement.

Dozier is one of two men accused of robbing Rep. Jaret Gibbons, a legislator from western Pennsylvania, as well as Gibbons' chief-of-staff and an intern.

Gibbons reported that he and the others were forced to the ground at gunpoint in the area of N. Court and South Street, and had their wallets and cell phones stolen during the incident in the area of N. Court and South Street during the early hours of March 12, 2012.

Dozier and his accomplice took off in the intern's car. Both were arrested in the stolen vehicle a short time later.

A second suspect, 24-year-old Michael Chavis, is awaiting trial.
