Springfield - The second man charged with armed robbery at a local candy shop has been sentenced.
Marco Poole, 29, has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for armed robbery and aggravated battery. Police say Poole along with two other men robbed Pease's Candy store last year.
Marco Poole, his brother, Michael Poole, and Towan Davis, attempted to cover their faces with handkerchiefs as they walked into the candy store last year. One woman was sent to the hospital after the robbery. Davis hit her in the head with a BB gun.
Towan Davis was sentenced in July to 20 years in prison. Michael Poole's trial will be in October, for the same charges.
