JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Nineteen year old Sequa Berry was sentenced to 23 years in prison on 2 counts of armed robbery Tuesday morning in Hinds County Circuit Court. The crime happened in April of 2012.

Berry's family was very emotional when the sentence was being given.

"This does not excuse your appalling actions," said Judge Jeff Weill from the bench. "You terrorized this fine young couple. I believe she's about to have a baby and that memory will stay in their lives forever for all at most of $250 from a coffee can."

Berry was also given 5 years of post release supervision.
