Americus -- A South Georgia man is given a 40 year sentence, after he pleads guilty to the robbery and vicious beating of two Americus convenience store clerks.

This is the disturbing surveillance video from the store, as four men robbed the Flash Foods in October. It shows one of the robbers repeatedly kicking and punching the two clerks.

Thursday 28 year old Trevor Hart pleaded guilty. He was the look out man in the rear of the store.He never actually hit the clerks.

 Hart was given a 40 year sentence, the first 20 years in prison.

Of the four men arrested in the case, two pleaded guilty and two were found guilty in trials. They received sentences ranging from 10 years, to 80 years for Lakendrick Johnson, the robber who beat the clerks.
