NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A 42-year-old Nacogdoches man accepted a plea bargain deal of 5 years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison for a robbery charge that stemmed from an incident in which he demanded money from a Rudy's convenience store clerk in August.

Michael Lee Randolph, of Nacogdoches, appeared in Judge Campbell Cox's 145th Judicial District Court Friday morning. He pleaded guilty to a second-degree felony charge of robbery.

According to the police report, the robbery occurred between 10L50 and 10:58 a.m. on Aug. 27. Randolph entered the Rudy's convenience store located at the intersection of the Nacogdoches loop and Center Highway and demanded the clerk hand over the contents of the cash register.

Randolph remained in the store when another customer entered the business. The clerk used the opportunity to call the police.

When the Nacogdoches Police officers arrived on the scene, Randolph was still in the store. The police report said no weapon was displayed, and no one was injured.

Randolph was arrested at the scene and transported to the Nacogdoches County Jail.
