A Westminster man will serve 18 months in prison with additional time suspended for his part in the robbery of an acquaintance.
Connor Patrick Cashman, 19, of the 900 block of Wampler Lane, pleaded not guilty but agreed not to challenge the state's version of the facts Wednesday to one count of conspiracy to commit robbery.
Judge J. Barry Hughes sentenced Cashman to five years in prison with all but 18 months suspended with credit for 82 days time served.
Cashman and Tyler Matthew McQuay, 18, of the 700 block of Johann Drive in Westminster, were charged in July after the victim reported he had been assaulted and robbed of $1,050 on June 26, according to the statement of facts read into the record by Senior Assistant State's Attorney Ashley Pamer.
Cashman and McQuay picked the victim up from his Westminster home and drove to the Sheetz gas station in Taneytown before walking behind the Taneytown fire company where Cashman put the victim in a choke hold, according to Pamer.
