Gilmore’s brother, 43-year-old Larry Gilmore, was previously handed an equivalent sentence in connection with the six robberies.

Kemp admitted to robberies in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. As the News Herald explained, “During their trials, Kemp told the jury Jones and the Gilmores helped orchestrate the robberies in various capacities.”

At his sentencing hearing, Michael Gilmore said he’s innocent an plans to take his case to appeals court.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
