ADAM M. TURNBOUGH, d/o/b 7-28-1985, of Notch, Missouri, was sentenced on Monday, February 2, 2015, by Senior Circuit Court Judge Carr Woods to ten (10) years in the Missouri Department of Corrections for the class B felony of robbery in the second degree. Defendant’s request for probation was denied. The range of punishment for robbery in the second degree is imprisonment for a term of five (5) to fifteen (15) years.

On September 11, 2013, Turnbough stole a woman’s purse while she got into her car in the parking lot behind Waxie O’Shea’s, at Branson Landing. The victim gave a detailed description of the robber, his vehicle, and the woman who was with him, to the Branson Police the same night the crime was committed. The woman had just gotten off work at a restaurant on the Landing, and – after Turnbough had been developed as a suspect – she identified Turnbough as the robber in a photo line-up. When questioned, Turnbough admitted to the crime, telling Branson Police that he was broke and wanted money for drugs.

In addition to his prison sentence, Turnbough was ordered by Judge Woods to pay restitution to the victim – as a condition of any future parole from prison he might be granted by the Parole Board.
