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.

A trial for Williams is slated for July 31.
