AUBURN, Maine—A former Maine high school track star has been sentenced to two years in jail for his role in the robbery of a Lewiston man's medical marijuana.

Ricardo Hairston was also sentenced Thursday in Androscoggin County Superior Court to three years of probation upon release and barred from using alcohol, illegal drugs, firearms or dangerous weapons.

The Sun Journal ( http://bit.ly/JXX8h2) reports the 20-year-old Hairston pleaded guilty last month to charges of robbery, burglary and theft.

Prosecutors say Hairston was one of three men who broke into a Lewiston couple's home in September 2011. Two of them had guns. They took marijuana the victim was legally allowed to use for medical reasons, as well as electronics.

Hairston won a state championship in the triple jump at Edward Little High School.
