Claude Damon Ladd pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery for holding up the Kinser Drugs in Kingston.
He received eight years in prison.
Prosecutor Bill Reedy said Ladd, 48, must serve the entire sentence.
“Eight years at 100 percent,” Reedy said. “It’s not a 30-percent crime. It’s a 100-percent crime, day for day for eight years.”
One of the unusual things about the Ladd case is how quickly it moved through the court system.
