COBB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A Mableton man has been convicted of aggravated assault with intent to rob, according to the Cobb County District Attorney's office.

Terence Dante Legare, 44, was charged with assault against a store clerk after a September 2012 attack at a CVS store in Mableton.

According to the D.A., Legare claimed he went to the store to buy gum or candy and realized he didn't have the money to pay for it.  He says that after asking the clerk if he could come back and pay, she refused and he left.

The clerk provided a different account saying Legare implied he had a weapon, and threatened to "blow her head off," according to the release.

The report says that surveillance video also showed the clerk backing away from the register with her hands up after Legare approached the counter.

Senior Judge Frank Mills, of Cherokee County, sentenced Legare to 20 years, with 14 years to serve.

The D.A's office says Legare has previously served time for drug and other offenses.
