DENVER - One of the men charged in connection to a robbery and kidnapping at a Denver Radio Shack was sentenced Thursday morning to 30 years in prison.
Taveuan Williams was charged with attempted first-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping, aggravated robbery and two sentence-enhancing accounts of crime and violence. Williams pleaded guilty May 9 to aggravated robbery and first-degree assault.
The 30-year prison sentence was a part of a pre-arranged plea agreement between counsels.
"I've been waiting for this day," Williams said in court on Thursday. "I'm just sorry for my actions and for everything I've done. It was wrong. I'm guilty. I'm not going to make an excuse for what I've done ... I'm ashamed and embarrassed of my actions."
Williams and Michael Annan held the store's manager hostage and shot at police during a robbery attempt. The six-hour standoff ended when Williams and Annan surrendered. No one was injured.
Michael Annan, 24, faces up to 40 years in prison for aggravated robbery. Another seven counts were dismissed. His sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 12.
