Two men who police say lured a prostitute to an Ama home in order to rob her were sentenced to six months in prison after both pleaded guilty to amended charges.

Clinton McGraw, 32, was originally charged with armed robbery but pleaded guilty to theft under $500. Jeremie Weber, 30, was originally charged with armed robbery but pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft.

Both men received credit for time served.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, McGraw found an escort service through the Internet and reached an agreement with Robin Tice in which she would perform sexual acts for money. Police say that Tice drove to McGraw’s Ama home with her pimp, 29-year-old Brandon Green of Memphis.

While Tice was inside McGraw’s home, Weber of Ama entered the house from a rear door wearing all dark clothing, according to Capt. Pat Yoes, Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

Weber demanded that Tice give him all of her money and then fled with her cell phone, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

McGraw originally told police that he tried to stop Weber but was knocked unconscious, Yoes said. However, police believe that Weber and McGraw were in on the crime together.

"There were a lot of contradictions in their statements," Yoes said.

Tice was able to identify one of the men because of a tattoo, which Yoes said led police to Weber.
