Man gets prison time for robbing teen clerk of $90 in Sioux Falls

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A 20-year-old man who robbed $90 from a teenage clerk at a Sioux Falls movie theater concession stand has been sentenced to serve five years in prison.

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.
