***UPDATE***Judge Sentences Bryan Freeze to 24 Years for String of Armed Robberies
October 24, 2011

Bryan Freeze was sentenced to 16 in prison Tuesday, Nov. 8, by Judge Charles Pater. Those 16 years are to run consecutive to a prior 8 year sentence given for a Liberty Township robbery in April, 2011. Freeze will not be released from prison until 2035.

On Friday, October 21, 2011, Butler County jury found Bryan Freeze, 41, guilty of seven robberies after deliberating for just under 2 hours. Freeze, along with co-defendant Wesley Moore, was involved in a string of robberies from October, 2010 through January, 2011 throughout Butler County. Judge Charles Pater also found Freeze to be a repeat violent offender due to a 1996 armed robbery conviction, as well as at least one robbery in Warren County. Moore was also found guilty earlier this year.

Assistant Prosecutor Greg Stephens was pleased with the outcome and the possible 126 years in prison facing Freeze when he appears for sentencing on November 8, 2011.

“I am very happy with the jury’s verdict,” stated Prosecutor Michael T. Gmoser. “This guy just hasn’t learned his lesson yet, and the fact that he is a repeat offender indicates that he never will.”
