A jury convicted a Camden man for a 2009 armed robbery at an Atlantic City casino during his second trial Thursday.

Tony Burnham, 27, was found guilty of second-degree conspiracy to commit armed robbery and second-degree robbery by force.

He was found not guilty of first-degree armed robbery and fourth-degree possession of an imitation firearm.

Authorities charged Burnham and his co-defendant, Dashand Chase, 23, of Camden, with robbing a 37-year-old Egg Harbor Township woman at Bally’s Park Place Casino on August 4, 2009. They were accused of putting a gun to the victim’s face and assaulting her when she got out of her vehicle at the casino’s parking garage and then robbing her.

The two were both tried in September 2012. Chase was convicted of first-degree armed robbery and several counts of witness tampering, but the jury did not reach a verdict on Burnham, who was retried last week.

Burnham will be sentenced on June 7 and faces up to 20 years in prison.
