A man convicted of attacking and robbing a Scott County couple learned Monday morning how long he'll spend behind bars.
The jury recommended a 30-year sentence for Stanley Stander when it convicted him in June, but a judge decided to give him even more time in jail.
Stander will serve 30 years in Scott County, but only after he serves seven years in Grant County for other charges connected to the case.
Stander broke into Ralph and Mattie Michaels' home in Georgetown last year, beat the couple then stole their car. He crashed in Grant County.
Mattie spent several weeks recovering in the hospital.
Also in Court on Monday, Stander's attorney filed several motions, but they were denied.
