A Hall County District Court judge has sentenced one of three people charged in a gas station robbery that happened back in August.
Geoffrey Adamson, 21, of Hastings was given four to five years in jail for attempted robbery. He pled no contest to the charge in November.
Prosecutors say Adamson drove the getaway car and provided the gun used during the robbery of the Git-N-Split at the I-80 Alda exit back in August. Adamson's attorney argued that his client did not enter the store, nor display the weapon, but prosecutors say the two others charged in the crime told investigators the robbery was Adamson's idea, and that he took the license plates off the car so they wouldn't get caught.
Adamson's attorney asked the judge for probation, but Deputy Hall County Attorney David Medlin called it a "serious crime" and asked for jail time.
Adamson was emotional when he asked Judge James Livingston for "mercy" and said he knew that he hurt his family and friends, as well as the gas station employee, with his actions.
"I'm not a dumb kid, I just made a dumb mistake, a really, really dumb mistake, the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life," Adamson said.
Livingston gave Adamson credit for 110 days served in jail, and ordered that he pay the gas station back $841. If the two other people charged in the robbery are convicted, they will have to help pay that amount back as well.
