The Jasper County (MO) prosecutorís office obtained convictions Friday with plea deals reached...

Ashley N. Bassett, 27, of Fort Scott, Kan., pleaded guilty in Jasper County Circuit Court to three counts of stealing and received probation in a 2008 case involving three male patrons of the OK Bar in Joplin.

Bassett was accused of approaching the men in the bar at 1516 S. Main St. and inviting them to a party at a friendís house. According to a police report and court records, she got into a vehicle with the men and directed them to an alley in the 800 block of South Sergeant Avenue, where an unidentified male accomplice was waiting with a gun. She and the gunman demanded money from the victims, took the wallet of one of the men and fled.

An investigation by Joplin police led to the arrest of Bassett, but not her accomplice. She had been facing three counts of first-degree robbery, a Class A felony offense. The counts were reduced to the Class C felony offense of stealing by her plea deal, which also called for the terms to run concurrent.

Circuit Judge David Mouton assessed Bassett seven years on each count, but suspended execution of the sentences and instead placed her on probation for five years.
