A Davenport man has been sentenced  to up to 50 years in connection with multiple robberies in 2017.

Edwin Goodwin Jr., 20, was convicted in August of five counts of second-degree robbery, a Class C felony, and one count of commission of specified unlawful activity, a Class B felony.

Police say in September 2017, he reached out to various people on Craigslist about buying or selling items, such as cell phones and a laptop.

When the potential sellers or buyers met up with him, Goodwin pulled a handgun and demanded the items or money, according to police.

On Thursday, Judge Joel Barrows sentenced him to up to five back-to-back 10-year sentences on the robbery charges. He must serve 50 percent, or 25 years, before he can be considered for parole.

Barrows also sentenced him to up to 25 years in prison on the commission of specified unlawful activity. That sentence will run at the same time as the sentence on the robbery charges.

Goodwin was charged in March in connection with a shooting in Davenport. He has a final pretrial conference Nov. 21 in that case.
