Pizza store robber sentenced to 25 years in prison

A man who admitted robbing two central Kentucky pizza stores at gunpoint will spend the next 25 years in prison.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced 44-year-old Patrick Holder was sentenced Thursday in federal court.

Holder admitted in court he robbed a Papa John's on Nicholasville Road in Lexington and a Domino's Pizza on Clays Mill Road in 2009.

He pleaded guilty to interference with commerce through force and violence (armed robbery), use of a firearm during the commission of armed robbery, and escape from custody.

While awaiting sentencing, Holder escaped from the Woodford County Detention Center in May. He was arrested a few hours later.

Under federal law, Holder has to serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence.
