In a plea agreement with prosecutors, 29-year-old Michael Willis pleaded guilty and was sentenced Monday to serve 21 months of a seven-year jail sentence.

ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) _ A South Thomaston man has been sentenced to less than two years in jail for robbing a Rockland pharmacy last year.

In a plea agreement with prosecutors, 29-year-old Michael Willis pleaded guilty and was sentenced Monday to serve 21 months of a seven-year jail sentence.

His lawyer, Erick Morse, tells WABI-TV that his client apologized in court and said he was driven by his addiction to drugs.

Willis robbed Jensen's Pharmacy of prescription painkiller pills in July 2012.
