Second robber gets 4-to-20 years in caper at Forest Hill

LEWISBURG — One day after Michael A. Gulli was sentenced to up to 20 years in state prison for robbing a Mifflinburg store at gunpoint, codefendant Jeffrey Stahl received the same penalty Friday in Union County Court.

Stahl, 31, of Mifflinburg, wasn’t as contrite as Gulli, 45, of Northumberland, who apologized during his sentencing hearing Thursday.

“I’ve got nothing,” Stahl replied when Judge Michael T. Hudock asked if he had anything to say before the four-year to 20-year prison sentence was imposed.

Both Stahl and Gulli received the same sentence after pleading guilty to robbing Forest Hill Store on Route 192 on Jan. 28. Nichole Mullany, 31, and Courtney Shirk, 21, were held up at gunpoint as the men took $400 in cash from the store.

Holly Hoffman, 38, of Mifflinburg, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery for driving the getaway car and will be sentenced at a later date.

Both Hoffman and Stahl have family ties to the store.

Stahl and Mullany, one of the store’s clerks, are cousins, and Hoffman has a child with the son of store co-owner, Ronald Hartman.

Hartman, Mullany and Shirk attended Friday’s hearing.

Stahl will receive credit for time served in Union County jail since his Jan. 30 arrest, two days after the robbery.
