12½-year sentence for violent mugging in Everett

A Lynnwood man who last year robbed and punched a 91-year-old man, who later died, was sentenced today to 12½ years in prison, the Herald of Everett is reporting.

Patrick Hartness, 26, admitted earlier this month that he attacked and robbed Harold E. Caywood at an Arco service station at 9931 19th Ave. S.E. on Aug. 24. Caywood died weeks after the violent robbery.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office was not able to determine if the punch was the cause of Caywood’s death. The medical examiner said Caywood had other pre-existing medical conditions.

Snohomish County prosecutors decided not to pursue murder charges against Hartness, who pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery.

Caywood’s family says he was a World War II veteran who before the attack was an active man, making elaborate beading projects that won prizes at the Evergreen State Fair.
