An 18 year old who pleaded guilty was sentenced to prison Friday.
Court records show Brandon Thompson, from Ayden, was sentenced to 43 to 63 months.
Thompson is facing a charge of robbery with a firearm or other dangerous weapon.
Thompson was charged in the 2012 robbery at the Dollar General in Winterville.
A second suspect, Jaquan Chamberlain, was also charged in that case. Records show he was convicted of February 2012 armed robbery and given probation.
