A 22-year-old Aurora man was sentenced to nine years in prison Tuesday after admitting his role in a March robbery in which he stole a man's cash, jewelry and a car, authorities said.

Larry Moore, of the 200 block of Valley Avenue, pleaded guilty to felony aggravated robbery, which carried a top sentence of 15 years in prison.

Moore can have his sentence cut in half for good behavior and was given credit for three months in jail while his case was pending.

Kane County Judge Patricia Golden accepted the plea.

Authorities said a man was robbed March 24 in Aurora Township after he was hit on the head from behind with a board and a beer bottle, his pants removed and his hands and feet bound with electrical cord.

About $190 was stolen from the victim, along with his watch, gold and diamond earrings, a gold class ring, and his car.

A sheriff's report said the victim was robbed at 8:30 p.m. when he went to the 200 block of Parkside Avenue to visit a woman he was dating. The victim told deputies that the woman greeted him with a hug and he was then knocked unconscious from behind.

Ashley R. Gordon, 19, of the 1600 block of Liberty Street, Aurora, also faces charges in the case and is due in court July 17.

She was being held in the Kane County jail on $160,000 bail, and she must post $16,000 to be released while her case is pending.

Moore's case was prosecuted by Kane County Assistant State's Attorney Greg Sams and investigated by the Kane County Sheriff's Department.
