FARGO, N.D. (AP) - U. S. Attorney Christopher Myers says the accused lookout man and getaway driver in a restaurant robbery in which an employee was shot in the leg have been sentenced to time in prison.

Myers says 27-year-old Rico Jamal Brown was sentenced to serve five years in prison after pleading to aiding and abetting this robbery by participating as a lookout. Twenty-five-year-old Calvin Michael Frederick Brown was sentenced to three years, six months in prison after pleading to being a getaway driver for the robbery.

The men are two of four people charged in the September 2015 robbery at a Taco John’s in south Fargo. It was one of a rash of armed robberies in September that convinced federal prosecutors to take on some of the cases under the Hobbs Act.
