Aggravated robbery yields 50-year sentence

A Parker County jury Tuesday evening sentenced a 19-year-old Weatherford man to 50 years in prison for robbing a Weatherford smoke shop at gunpoint.

Jaggar Lee Bayliff, 19, pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery on Monday and elected to have a jury determine his punishment.

Jurors watched the July 1, 2012, robbery occur in real time on the store’s surveillance camera and had the chance to hear the victim’s emotional call to 911 following the robbery during the presentation of evidence on Tuesday.

Bayliff will be eligible for parole in 25 years, said Parker County District Attorney Don Schnebly.

“The sentence in this case is consistent with the stand Parker County jurors have always taken against violent crime,” Schnebly said.

The case was tried in the 43rd Judicial District Court with District Judge Craig Towson presiding.
