Men who robbed Carson City veteran to be sentenced Nov. 19

Nevada Appeal Capitol Bureau

The two men who pleaded guilty to robbing a 101-year-old veteran on Memorial Day will be sentenced Nov. 19.

Sentencing was originally set for Monday but was postponed by District Judge James Wilson.

Robbie Hernandez, 28, and Jordan Burkhart, 24, were charged with robbing James Sorrentino at gunpoint in his south Carson City home, a robbery that netted them just $30 in cash and some personal items.

Sorrentino has since passed away of natural causes.

When they are sentenced, they could receive up to 20 years in prison for the robbery and another 15 years for the deadly weapon enhancement.

Both remain in custody in lieu of $250,000 bail.
