Jonathan Earl Holmes, 22, of Blountstown, was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison Wednesday after a motion for mistrial was denied.
Holmes was convicted in April for his role in a convenience store robbery last year at the Pit Stop on SR 20.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, the clerk said two black males entered the store wearing dark clothing and bandannas. She alleged one man held her at gunpoint and threatened to kill her, while the other took approximately $800 from the cash register.
Holmes is required to serve a mandatory minimum of three years.
