Foster's Daily Democrat reports that Edwin Dorr was sentenced Monday in Strafford Superior Court to 3 ½ to 7 years for each of two charges. He will serve at least five years, which will include his pre-trial confinement.

Dorr was found guilty in August of conspiracy to commit robbery and assault in connection with a January incident at a Somersworth apartment.
