Md. Man Gets 12 Years In Attack On Campers
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Hagerstown man accused of terrorizing four teenagers at a campsite last year is going to prison.
Zachary Lee, 22, pleaded guilty Wednesday to four counts of attempted armed robbery. A Frederick County judge sentenced Lee to 12 years behind bars for his role in the attack last April at a campsite along the Monocacy River near Tuscarora.
Lee is the final defendant in the case.
Nicholas Cann, 22, of Frederick was sentenced to 12 years in prison in February. Co-defendant George Carroll of Frederick was sentenced in November to 18 years in prison.
The victims told police that the defendants, who were camping nearby, threatened them with machetes and a baseball bat and took their money.
