Jeffery Allen Judkins, 44, of Lawrenceburg, was found guilty of aggravated robbery Tuesday afternoon in circuit court for his involvement in the Oct. 18, 2016, armed robbery of Fall River Market, located on Fall River Road just off U.S. Highway 64.

Judkins will be sentenced in December by Circuit Judge Bob Jones and faces 20-30 years in prison.
