CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A woman who pleaded guilty to robbing Indiana casino winners was sentenced Wednesday in Hamilton County on multiple aggravated robbery counts.

Amy Hoover, 26, was sentenced to three years in prison. She will get credit for 306 days.

Hooven was arrested with two men in October in an undercover operation.

Prosecutors say the trio followed Indiana riverboat casino patrons to Ohio, robbing them at gunpoint.

A judge this month found  Kenyatta Erkins, 36, and Ugbe Ojile, 34, each guilty of nearly a dozen charges including aggravated robbery, conspiracy to robbery, robbery and felonious assault. They are to be sentenced next month.

Hoover pleaded guilty to five counts of aggravated robbery in a deal with prosecutors and agreed to testify against Ojile and Erkins, the father of her child.

Prosecutors say there were at least two dozen robberies over several months.
