Tyler Leeder of Lethbridge was given about two years of credit for time already spent in custody.
Leeder, who is 28, surrendered to a heavily armed tactical team outside a hotel in Rocky Mountain House, Alta., in April 2012.
He was wanted for armed robberies in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and was also accused of injuring an Alberta RCMP officer when a police car was rammed by a truck.
A 17-year-old girl who had been reported missing from the Lethbridge area was with Leeder when he was arrested.
It was suspected that she had been travelling with him since 2010.
