A 38-year-old man pleaded no contest today to robbing numerous gardeners at gunpoint four years ago, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Justin Ford said Aaron Deon Seymour of Los Angeles entered the plea to two felony counts of second-degree robbery and admitted a 2006 conviction for voluntary manslaughter.

Seymour was immediately sentenced to 17 years in state prison.

The case involved 10 different victims between March and May 2016. All told Seymour made off with about $6,000 in cash, along with phones, jewelry and other personal property, the prosecutor said.

Case BA447184 was investigated by the Los Angeles and Inglewood police departments.
