A Greensburg man accused of robbing a convenience store manager who was making a bank deposit in Hempfield was sentenced Monday to serve three to six years in a state prison.
Heath Aubrey Phillips, 25, pleaded guilty before Judge Debra Pezze to charges of conspiracy and robbery. He was ordered to serve a two-year probation term consecutive to incarceration and pay $5,296 in restitution.
The robbery occurred on Oct. 4, 2010, outside the 1st National Bank Stone Bank branch office in Hempfield.
