Anthony R. Botte Jr., was one of two accomplices accused of the robbery-at-gunpoint, which occurred on Nov. 28 of last year. A plea deal, accepted by Botte on Friday, will send him to state prison for the next five years.

He will also receive five years of post release supervision as part of the deal.
