A 23-year-old Warner Robins man was sentenced to 25 years in prison Friday after a jury found him guilty of robbing Cash for Gold on Mercer University Drive last year.
Bibb County jurors deliberated for about 90 minutes following a weeklong trial for Marcus Ramon Denning, said Neil Halvorson, a Bibb County prosecutor.
Denning was found guilty of armed robbery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a first-offender probationer and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
He was serving probation for a Houston County financial transaction card fraud conviction, Halvorson said.
Denning and three other men entered the store, located near the intersection with Burton Avenue, on May 29, 2012, and robbed a clerk at gunpoint before barricading him in a bathroom. They took cellphones, money, a game system, gold jewelry, a laptop computer and the clerks wallet, Halvorson said.
The other three men accepted plea bargains and testified at Dennings trial. Charges are still pending against a woman who didnt enter the store, he said.
