Shepherd pleads guilty, will serve over seven years
A Hood River man was sentenced this week for robbing a business in his hometown and another in Wasco County. Tucker Douglas Shepherd, 21, will spend nine years in prison and pay restitution to both Subway in Hood River and Jack’s Mini Mart in The Dalles. Hood River County District Attorney John Sewell and Wasco County District Attorney Eric Nisley worked together on a settlement for both cases. “We felt the sentence was fair and appropriate,” said Nisley. Shepherd held up the Subway on Cascade Avenue with a shotgun on July 3 before fleeing the scene with cash in tow. \He was arrested at Hood River Library later that week. He also robbed Jack’s by The Dalles Bridge the day before his arrest. Shepherd appeared last week before Judge John Wolf in the Hood River County courthouse, via video feed from Northern Oregon Regional Corrections facility, to enter his first guilty plea. Except for briefly answering Wolf’s questions, Shepherd didn’t speak during his hearing. It was over in about five minutes. Shepherd’s attorney, Bernice Melamud, testified, “On July 3, 2016, Mr. Shepherd entered Subway in Hood River with a shotgun and threatened physical force on (a female Subway employee) who was working at the cash register, in the course of committing theft.”
