AMHERST - A teenager was sentenced to 12 months probation for his part in an armed robbery back in December.
The teen, who can't be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was 15 at the time of the Dec. 13 armed robbery at Snow White Laundry on Victoria Street.
The youth was given a 12-month probationary sentence, with conditions, for the charge and also for a charge of having his face masked during the commission of an offence.
At around 7 p.m. that date, the male and a 15-year-old female entered the convenience store together with hoods over their heads and wearing sunglasses.
The facts were outlined during a sentencing hearing for the female, who also pleaded guilty to both counts. She was sentenced to 18 months probation with conditions in total.
While inside the store, the teens brandished kitchen knives before the female pushing a button on the cash register and the two fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
The male was also given a two-year firearms prohibition and a DNA sample order was granted.
