FARMINGTON -- An 18-year-old man who admitted to robbing a convenience store to get money to buy an Xbox has been sentenced to serve six months in jail.
Judge Thomas L. Kay sentenced Dustin Lee Ferguson, of Clearfield, to serve the six months in Davis County Jail, giving him credit for the 77 days he has served since his arrest. He also sentenced him to serve three years' probation and 100 hours of community service.
Kay stayed a sentence of up to five years in Utah State Prison.
Ferguson pleaded guilty to third-degree felony attempted robbery and a threat of violence, a class B misdemeanor, on Feb. 16. He was originally charged with second-degree felony robbery.
Police said Ferguson went inside a Chevron gas station convenience store at 1716 S. Main St. in Clearfield on Jan. 17, told the employees he had a gun and robbed the store.
He then left and got into a car police said was driven by Timothy David Thomasson, 21, of Layton.
Thomasson appeared in 2nd District Court on March 15. He is charged with second-degree felony robbery.
Kay ordered a mental competency evaluation for Thomasson. A competency hearing for Thomasson is set for May 24.
