EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - A 29-year-old man can expect to spend the rest of his life in prison after a Snohomish convenience store robbery that netted $60 and eight packs of cigarettes.

Keith Puett was sentenced Wednesday in Snohomish County Superior Court as a three-strikes offender.

The Daily Herald reports he had two previous convictions for assault and pleaded guilty to robbery for the armed hold-up last January.
