KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A military veteran who said he suffered a brain injury and has post-traumatic stress disorder after combat service in Afghanistan has been given a 6-year deferred sentence for robbing a Kalispell convenience store in November 2014.

District Judge David Ortley sentenced 31-year-old Jeremy Conder on Nov. 3, ordering that he be supervised by a veteran’s court in Great Falls, where he now lives.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (bit.ly/2fmmesW) Conder was convicted of felony criminal endangerment after prosecutors reduced the charge from robbery. He was arrested right after the robbery because his pickup truck wouldn’t start.

Conder testified during his sentencing hearing that he sometimes suffers episodes where he does not remember what he’s doing. He said he underwent an eight-week PTSD treatment program, but still needs more treatment.
