CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) – The son of former St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for a series of robberies.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 37-year-old Phillip Goodwin of University City was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to more than a dozen robberies across the St. Louis area.

Goodwin was arrested in 2014 by Florissant police after a robbery at a Circle K Gas Station. Police then determined that Goodwin was a suspect in several other crimes.

Goodwin was released from prison last spring after serving part of a 22-year sentence for a previous robbery.

Dooley served nearly 12 years as county executive. He was defeated in the August 2014 Democratic primary by Steve Stenger, who went on to win the general election.
