A self-proclaimed white supremacist was sentenced by Judge Michael Allen to 15 years in state prison for “robbery without a firearm.” Vincent Lavon Johnson also received 15 years state prison for “robbery with a weapon” and “aggravated battery on pregnant person.” Those sentences are to run consecutive for a total of 30 years in state prison.
On May 28, the attacker went in to Happy Nick’s convenience store on Palafox Street at about 8:00 a.m. He punched the clerk in the face and demanded and took the cash in the register. On June 18, Johnson entered the Boost Mobile on Bayou Blvd. around 3:20 in the afternoon and again punched the clerk in the face who at the time was 6 months pregnant.
He emptied out and took the contents of the cash register. Both of these crimes were caught on surveillance video and Johnson was identified from the videos.
Johnson has been in and out of state prison since 1990 and has 43 prior felony convictions.
The investigations of these crimes were conducted by both the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office and Pensacola Police Department.
