HELENA, Mont. -

A Montana man whose apparent reluctance to rob a pizza restaurant in January got him some free food and widespread sympathy has received a sentence that likely means drug treatment and probation.
The Independent Record reports District Judge Mike Menahan on Wednesday sentenced 33-year-old David Randall Lacey to 15 years with the Department of Corrections with 10 suspended. He recommended Lacey undergo a chemical dependency evaluation and possible treatment.
Lacey pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon for threatening a Papa John's clerk with a knife and demanding money. He told investigators he started crying and made up a story about having a hungry family when he saw how little money was in the cash register. The clerk made him a pizza.
He also pleaded guilty to selling meth to an undercover officer last September.
