A Hampstead man was sentenced to 10 years in prison Thursday after being convicted of attempted robbery.
Terry Gene Gerard, 40, pleaded not guilty but agreed not to challenge the state's version of the facts.
Judge Thomas F. Stansfield said he would consider modifying Gerard's sentence to allow him to enter drug treatment after he serves four years of the sentence.
Gerard was arrested in September after he entered the Subway restaurant on Jermor Lane in Westminster and demanded money and threatened an employee, according to the statement of facts Circuit Court Chief Attorney Allan Culver read into the record.
The employee went to the back of the store and told other employees what had happened, and Gerard left the Subway without speaking to anyone else, according to Culver.
