ALEXANDRIA, S.D. -- A Cloquet, Minn., woman arrested for her involvement in an attempted robbery was sentenced Friday to 95 days in prison.

Kelsey Souder, 20, pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with an Oct. 26 robbery attempt at a gas station in Alexandria, S.D. She was sentenced to five years in the state penitentiary, with all but 95 days of the sentence to be suspended. She also received credit for five days of time already served, knocking her stay in the penitentiary down to 90 days.

Souder originally pleaded not guilty to two felonies and four misdemeanors last December.

According to Hanson County State's Attorney James Davies, Souder served as the getaway driver in a robbery attempt in 2014. Souder was driving from Brookings to Colorado with Alissa Linnay Wakefield when the two stopped at the former Shell Oil gas station in Alexandria where Wakefield aimed a BB gun at the store's clerk and three customers. Wakefield was tackled by people in the store before she could complete the robbery.

Wakefield was sentenced in March to five years in prison for her involvement in the incident, with two of those years suspended.
