The last of three Baltimore teenagers who took $2,901 in a 1997 armed robbery of the Conococheague Grocery Store near Clear Spring was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison.
Sam Christopher Hacker, now 17, had nothing to say when Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell pronounced sentence for one count of robbery.
Hacker was ordered to pay $1,000 in restitution once he is released from prison.
"I'm reminded of the fear these victims were feeling that day - a nightmare for those people," said McDowell, who has sentenced all three of the robbers.
On April 30, Joseph E. Hoyle was sentenced to five years in prison for robbery.
Hoyle, now 17, was 15 when he acted as the getaway driver in the Jan. 5, 1997, robbery.
After Hoyle is released, he will have to pay $967 in restitution and remain on probation for two years.
On Jan. 15, Rodney Allen Wright, 17, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery. He, too, was sentenced to serve five years in prison.
