Jason Truman pleaded guilty Tuesday in Kennebec County Superior Court to the Nov. 26 robbery of a Walmart pharmacy.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ An Augusta man has been sentenced to two years in prison for robbing a Walmart pharmacy last year.

Jason Truman pleaded guilty Tuesday in Kennebec County Superior Court to the Nov. 26 robbery. A judge imposed a sentence negotiated between the district attorney's office and Truman's attorney.

The complete sentence was 10 years in prison, with all but two years suspended, and two years of probation. The 33-year-old Truman also was ordered to pay up to $1,000 restitution.

Truman told police he stole prescription painkillers to sell for money to pay the $700 deposit on an apartment for his sister.

The Kennebec Journal reports that he said he discarded two of three bottles of OxyContin he was given because they were more than he needed.
