Soldier Gets Probation in Fake Robbery Plot

ATLANTA (AP) - The fourth and final soldier caught up in a plot to rob a cocaine dealer at gunpoint has been sentenced to three years probation for failing to tell authorities about the plan, which turned out to be concocted by an undercover federal agent.

U.S. District Judge Beverly Martin also fined Sgt. 1st Class Randy Spivey $3,000 Thursday, three months after he pled guilty to misprision of a felony.

The others were sentenced earlier to two to three years in prison.

The 32-year-old Spivey, a decorated combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, was an instructor of Army Rangers at Camp Frank D.
Merrill near Dahlonega. He didn't go along on the day of the planned robbery but admitted not reporting it.
