FARMINGTON, Maine — The getaway driver in a local convenience store robbery in 2010 was sentenced Friday to six months in jail, all suspended.

Marcia Tracy, 29, of Strong was also sentenced to serve one year of probation, according to Franklin County Superior Court documents. She drove the Jeep used in the heist at C.N. Brown’s Big Apple store on Dec. 21, 2010, in Farmington Falls.

She initially was charged with felony robbery but pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor of receiving stolen property in February. Assistant District Attorney James Andrews previously said Tracy would tell the court she had no idea co-defendant Miguel Visuano planned to rob the store.

Visuano, 27, of Farmington pleaded no contest to aggravated criminal threatening earlier this month and was sentenced to seven months and 15 days of a three-year prison term, followed by two years of probation. By the time the agreement was reached, Visuano had served the sentence and was released that day. He was ordered to pay up to $300 restitution to the store.

Visuano was accused of going into The Big Apple with his face covered, carrying under his shirt a wooden baton-like weapon with a chain attached and telling the clerk to empty the cash register. Two cartons of cigarettes also were stolen.
