A man learns his punishment for a violent purse snatching last year.
The State Journal reports 24-year-old John Hawkins was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Hawkins approached 64-year-old Brenda Patrick outside the Frankfort Steak and Shake, in August, pushed her down and stole her purse.
Patrick suffered a broken shoulder in the incident.
She and her family were in court for Friday's sentencing.
The paper reports Hawkins cried while apologizing to her for the crime.
