An Onslow County man is facing more than eight years in prison after he robbed a Jacksonville restaurant.
Osric Daise, a 23-year-old man from Hubert, was sentenced in federal court Wednesday. In June, Daise had pleaded guilty to the crime.
Daise and another man held up the Captain D's Seafood Restaurant in Jacksonville in October 2010. Daise threatened to shoot the manager and cook and then forced the two to leave the restaurant with him. When Daise got outside, Jacksonville police took him into custody. No one was hurt.
Following his prison time, Daise will be on five years probation. Reports indicate the second robber was never captured.
