ANNAPOLIS, Md. - A man who robbed a convenience store in Annapolis where he frequently bought lottery tickets has been sentenced to 13 years in prison.
Thirty-nine-year-old Tjuantel Jackson of Annapolis pleaded guilty to robbery, assault and other offenses on Tuesday.
His public defender said Jackson had been sober for 17 months but went on a drug-and-alcohol binge after his mother became ill. He robbed the 7-Eleven in January.
According to The Capital of Annapolis, (bit.ly/Kthiif) the clerk Jackson robbed, who said she considered him a friend, said she hasn't been back to work since the robbery.
