Wausau man sentenced for string of robberies


A 27-year-old Wausau man was sentenced to 15 years in prison Tuesday for a string of robberies that occurred in 2011.

Mariano Valera pleaded no contest to two counts of armed robbery with the threat of force in a plea bargain in which a third count of armed burglary with a dangerous weapon was dismissed, according to Marathon County online court records.

Police said Valera was arrested in the fall 2011 robberies of Piggy's Pub and Cliffhanger's Bar in suburban Wausau.

Circuit Judge Gregory Grau ordered that Valera's 15-year sentence include 7.5 years in prison and 7.5 years on extended supervision, online court records said.
