Two Cleveland men have pleaded guilty before Judge Tammy O'Brien in Summit County Court of Common Pleas in connection with an Oct. 3 armed robbery at Panera Bread on Darrow Road in Twinsburg.

Corey D. Johnson, 26, pleaded guilty March 14 to one count of aggravated robbery with a firearm specification; a repeat violent offender specification and having weapons while under disability charge were dropped.

Johnson was sentenced to seven years in jail, including a three-year mandatory sentence for possession of a firearm; and four years for the aggravated robbery. The three-year sentence is to be served consecutively with the four-year sentence; Johnson will be credited for the 137 days already served.

In addition, Johnson is ordered to pay Panera $2,953.83, "jointly and severally with the co-defendant in this case," according to the court record. Johnson was given five years probation after he is finished with his jail sentence.
