It was a heated day in a Tippecanoe County courtroom Tuesday, earning a convicted robber even more time behind bars.
Steven Burns, 25, was sentenced to 70 years in prison.
Earlier this month, a jury found him guilty of several charges, including burglary while armed with a deadly weapon, robbery resulting in bodily injury, and criminal confinement.
Court documents say Burns and two other men beat and robbed an elderly couple at a home on N. 28th Street in August.
In court Tuesday, Steven Burns called Judge Steven Meyer a “cowardly bitch.” That earned Burns an additional 180 days in prison.
