A man who says he wanted to rob a business to return to prison will be locked up for a long time.

Mark Wilson was sentenced this week to at least 25 years in prison for armed robbery.

Police say the 59-year-old from Portage gave a note to a Hardee's employee in Escanaba last July, indicating that he was robbing the restaurant. He went into a restroom until police arrived.

Wilson told a judge that he's “lost the ability to function normally with society.”

Wilson's lawyer says Wilson seemed pleased with the 25-year sentence. He won't be eligible for parole until he's in his 80s.
