LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - A Lufkin woman pleaded guilty to robbing a convenience store on New Year’s Eve 2020.

Amanda Marilee Ebarb pleaded guilty in Judge Paul White’s court on Mon. Dec. 27. 2021 to a charge of robbery, accepting an eight-year prison sentence.

Ebarb’s conviction is in connection with the robbery of A Deel’s #2 at 7:55 p.m., December 31, 2020. According to the arrest affidavit, upon entering the store, Jordan Franklin Hartt pointed a gun at the store clerk and demanded money.

During the assault, Hartt allegedly struck the clerk on the back, discharging the gun and causing the clerk to suffer a non-life threatening head wound.

Hartt’s case is currently pending, according to court records.
