One of two men, who police say beat and robbed a Greenville man in an attack that was caught on camera, has admitted to the crime.
Kemauri Bond pleaded guilty this morning to common law robbery and was sentenced to serve 8 to 19 months in jail. An assault charge was dropped as a result of a plea deal.
Police say the 16-year-old Bond and Jordan Williams were caught on camera robbing 62-year-old Ray Wooten as he left the Kangaroo Convenience Store at Evans Street and Arlington Boulevard back in October.
Assistant District Attorney Kimberly Robb says once the media aired the video, a school resource officer at J.H. Rose High School recognized Bond, who was a sophomore at the school.
The judge gave Bond credit for time already served and told him when released from custody he could not have any gang affiliation.
