SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A Springfield man was sentenced Thursday after being convicted by a jury on March 20, 2013 of breaking into a home and robbing a father and his two young daughters.

According to a press release, Ramone E. Hicks, 25, has six previous felony convictions for distribution of a controlled substance, drug trafficking, unlawful use of a weapon, resisting arrest, escape from confinement and forgery.

After being incarcerated on those convictions, Hicks was paroled on July 2, 2010. Only two months after being placed on parole, he committed this home invasion when he and two accomplices broke into a family’s home, tied up the victim, held the victim and his two daughters at gun and knife point, threatened their lives and demanded money and valuables.

On Thursday, Hicks was sentenced to 60 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections. He will have to serve 85 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
