Hannibal man who robbed adult store sentenced to 36 months probation

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The Hannibal man who robbed the Chelsea Adult Store was sentenced to three years of probation during a sentencing hearing Friday morning in Quincy.

According to court documents, 20-year-old Adam Morrall was also ordered to pay Chelsea $1,100 in restitution along with $1,000 in court costs.

Morrall was also ordered to serve 360 days in jail with 179 days credited as time served. The jail sentence was stayed by Judge Scott Walden until a hearing scheduled for Oct. 22. Assistant State's Attorney Gary Farha said Morrall could stay out of jail as long as he abides by the terms of his probation.

Prosecutors were asking for eight years in prison.

Authorities say Morrall and 19-year-old James Meredith, of Ewing, entered the store March 4 wearing hoodies. The two then pointed what appeared to be a gun at the clerk and demanded money. They left the store with $1,100.
