The woman charged with robbing and beating a Fountain City barber shop owner pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery.
A judge sentenced Jennifer Danielle Johnson to 9 years behind bars. Under the plea deal she accepted, Johnson will have to serve 85% of that sentence.
Officers say she is one of two people who broke into Glenn's Barber Shop back in August stealing hundreds of dollars from 79-year old Glenn Farrington.
Police say Johnson came to the door asking for a couple dollars. When Farrington opened it, Johnson and another man pushed their way in.
The couple knocked Glenn to the ground breaking his hip.
He recently returned to work after being in the hospital for 20 days and at home for months.
"I didn't know if I could sit down or stand up so I've cut 5 or 6 and stood up the whole time, Farrington told us after Johnson's arrest last week. "My hip still hurts. I remember laying there on the floor and I couldn't move. He could've killed me."
Police are still searching for the man who committed the robbery.
