HURON, S.D. (AP) - One of two men charged in a staged armed robbery of a Huron convenience store has been sentenced.

Performance Radio of Huron reports that 27-year-old Sidney Malone Jr. pleaded guilty to grand theft and was sentenced to 30 days in jail, with four years suspended. He faced up to five years in prison.

Malone and 26-year old Donnell Williams are accused of setting up a fake armed robbery at the store where both men worked.
