Anthony Jefferson had 10 years added to his sentence Wednesday after pleading guilty to robbery and confinement charges.

Jessica McBrier of the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's office said Jefferson received 8 years for pleading guilty to a charge of Robbery, a Class C Felony. He also received two years each for Class C and Class D charges of confinement, which will be served concurrently with one another. These sentences will be added to the eight years he was already sentenced for previous convictions.

Jefferson had originally been charged with six different counts, including murder and attempted murder.  The murder charges were tried separately in February, and Jefferson was found not guilty.  He was found guilty of a lesser criminal recklessness charge, however.  He was sentenced to eight years in prison back in March for that conviction.

Jason Reid, 34, from Indianapolis was shot and killed in September of last year on the 1800 block of West Fassnacht Ave.  Police say Tyreece Walker, 33, was also shot multiple times, but survived. 

The robbery and confinement charges are unrelated to the shooting.  Prosecutors say Jefferson "forced a woman to withdraw $200 from an ATM machine on September 29, 2013, as she was checking her banking balance."  Jefferson was also accused of forcing the woman to drive him to another location and stealing her cell phone.  In addition, Jefferson was accused of a 7-Eleven robbery in South Bend on September 30, 2013.

Jefferson pled guilty to two counts of confinement and one count of robbery.  As part of the agreement, a second robbery charge was dismissed.  He is scheduled for sentencing on May 14.
