Lincoln gets 90 years

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” District Chief Judge James Boyd sentenced Samuel Lincoln this morning to 90 years in prison for stabbing a man with a bayonet and robbing his trailer in West Glenwood in 2004.

Lincoln was convicted of the crime at trial in March. A co-defendant, Lawrence Doty, was earlier found not guilty.

Lincoln now faces a total of about 332 years in prison. The 90-year sentence follows convictions in Mesa County including shooting at deputies and trying to shoot a man to death in the desert outside Grand Junction and burglary.
