AUBURN, Maine — A third man has pleaded guilty to his role in the robbery of a Lewiston man’s medical marijuana.

Derrick McDuffy pleaded guilty Wednesday in Androscoggin County Superior Court to robbery and burglary in connection with the September theft. The Sun Journal reported he was ordered to serve three years of a 10-year sentence and given three years of probation.

Prosecutors say the 22-year-old McDuffy was one of three men who kicked in a Lewiston couple’s front door and held a gun to a man’s head, threatening to kill him unless he handed over the marijuana he was legally allowed to use for health reasons. The defendants also stole electronics.

Two other men, 20-year-old Ricardo Hairston and 22-year-old Kevin Stitchel, have already pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the robbery.
