Craig Nichols Jr. told the judge Wednesday that his drug habit drove him to the crime on March 6.

Prosecutor Bonnie Costain said the 17-year-old female clerk was still terrified weeks later when recounting the robbery to a grand jury.

The Argus Leader reported Nichols also was sentenced for unrelated drug distribution and identity theft.
