ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany Teenager who was charged with robbing the Flash Foods on Liberty Expressway in July 2015 has entered a guilty plea.

A pink gun used in this robbery may have been used in at least one other crime, but authorities aren't sure.

On Monday, Ryshun Jackson plead guilty to armed robbery, two counts aggravated assault, possession of firearm during a felony, possession gun by a minor, and cruelty to a child.

Prosecutors say he robbed the Flash Foods on Liberty Expressway on July 27, 2015 when he was 15. He was given a 20 year total sentence, the first eight to serve in prison, with no parole. 

This was just one armed robbery using a pink revolver.

On Monday, June 12, Xavier Winbush pled guilty to robbery and possession of gun during a felony, for the October, 2016 armed robbery of the Oasis Convenience store at 1301 South Slappey Blvd.

He was given a 20 year sentence, the first 15 to serve in prison.

Two other co defendants in that case, Collin Donaldson and Pete Quintanilla, Jr., still have cases pending.
