Men in botched robbery sentenced to over 50 years

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The two men who tried to rob the Mr. Fuel in Caroline County will spend just about the rest of their lives in prison.

This was the robbery where a good samaritan smashed a beer bottle over the guy's head.

Video then shows Warren Brown shooting the man four times. He survived the shootings.

A federal judge sentenced Brown to 51 years in prison.

He gave the get-away-driver, Winston Oliver, 52 years because of his extensive criminal record.

A jury convicted Brown and his getaway driver last September.
