GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - A Georgetown man pleaded guilty to a judge just before his trial was scheduled to begin, according to Assistant Solicitor Erin Bailey.

Dwaine Lamark Johnson, Jr. pleaded guilty to armed robbery and two counts of attempted murder Tuesday after a jury for his case had been selected. 

Johnson was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The charges stem back to a restaurant robbery that happened two years ago.

On August 24, 2011, Johnson robbed the Szechuan Palace on Highmarket Street in Georgetown. He shot both owners of the restaurant just before closing and took $350 from the register.

Isiah Greene was also sentenced. Greene was Johnson's co-defendant in the case.

Greene pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of common law robbery and received a 7-year sentence.
