WOODBURY — A 23-year-old Pitman man pleaded guilty Monday, Oct. 27 to a 2012 robbery in National Park.
David M. Lynam 3rd, in a negotiated agreement, pleaded guilty to holding up the Mini Market on Columbia Boulevard in National Park on Aug. 22, 2012, authorities said.
According to the agreement, Assistant Gloucester County Prosecutor Temperance Williamson will recommend that Lynam be sentenced to five years in state prison, and that he serve 85 percent of that term before being eligible for parole.
Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 12.
In acknowledging that he committed the crime, Lynam said he took money and cigarettes from the store.
He was arrested in Philadelphia on Aug. 28, 2012, on a warrant.
Bruce M. Hemphill, 28, of Paulsboro, was also charged with the National Park robbery, in which a store owner was punched and kicked, authorities said. Hemphill was admitted to Drug Court in September and faces a seven-year prison sentence if he violates conditions set by the Drug Court and gets terminated from that program.
