Criminal Court Judge James Lammey accepted the plea of defendant LeMarco Beam and the six-year prison sentence recommended by attorneys on both sides.
The robbery occurred on Dec. 8, 2013, in the 2400 block of Ruby Oaks Drive in South Memphis. The victim told police he had planned to meet Beam at the location when the defendant robbed him.
A second man who attacked and beat the victim was never caught.
The case was handled by Asst. Dist. Atty. Gavin Smith.
