A Maryland man who was recruited to help with the robbery of a South Carolina couple has been sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Citing an Eleventh Circuit Solicitor’s Office release, news outlets report 29-year-old Robert Goodwin, Jr. pleaded guilty Aug. 8 to charges including kidnapping.

The release says jewelry store owners Lynda and Danny Tidwell were tied up and held at gunpoint for hours during the 2017 robbery.

They eventually freed themselves and called authorities.
