Tifton-A woman who robbed a Tifton convenience store in pajamas and a pink bathrobe has a new outfit she'll be wearing for the next 10 years, a prison jumpsuit.

42-year-old Mary Lunsford pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve ten years in prison and another ten on intensive probation for robbing the Swifty Serve at gunpoint back in January. When she couldn't open the cash register, she took off with it and the $43 inside.

During the sentencing hearing, Lunsford's attorney argued the gun she used was only a toy cap gun.
