Man Sentence for His Part in Robbery

A Nathalie man will serve five years in prison for his part in a robbery at a Brookneal convenience store last year. 31 year old, Adam Scott King, was sentenced in Campbell County last week for the October 25 robbery of the Jiffy Food. King pleaded guilty in February to one count of robbery, one count of burglary, one count of wearing a mask in public and one count of destruction of property. On Friday, the judge sentenced him to 18 years, but suspended all but the years to serve. 35 year old, co-defendant, Johnny Edward Thompson Jr., of Prospect, pleaded guilty in April to one count of accessory after the fact; he received 24 months, with 12 months suspended.
