WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to 33 to 66 years in prison on multiple charges, including two cases in which law enforcement officers said he fired weapons at them.

Thirty-one-year-old William Gronosky of Nanticoke had been convicted in Luzerne County in September on six counts in a March 2012 armed robbery of a Plymouth Township strip club.

He was sentenced Wednesday on those charges as well as a plea bargain reached Monday in four other cases, including robberies of two homes and a pair of police pursuits involving gunfire.

In one chase in March 2012, authorities said Gronosky fired three or four shots at a police car. The following month, officials said, a shot struck a state trooper's car during a pursuit.

No law enforcement officers were injured.
