Woman accused of providing getaway car in robbery gets plea deal

FAIRBANKS- As part of a plea deal the Fairbanks teen accused of providing a getaway car in an armed robbery has pleaded guilty to lesser charges.

19-year-old Taniesha Emry, originally charged with Robbery in the 1st degree, pleaded guilty to theft in the second degree.

Emry will serve no jail time; however, she will serve 3-years' probation.

She was part of an incident where three men allegedly robbed the sourdough gas station on Farmers Loop Road back in March, holding the attendant at gun point.

Today, that victim spoke to the Judge saying he was dissatisfied with the deal and that he still was going through counselling to cope with the aftermath.

The State called the deal a "strategic decision," further noting Emry would be testifying against her 3 co-defendants.

In the afternoon, Emry addressed the court and the victim in a statement; she said, "I hope I am doing everything I can to help the case and I just feel sorry for what you are going through."
