Tawayne Fly, 22, was sentenced to serve one year in the Washtenaw County Jail after pleading guilty Jan. 29 to one count of larceny from a person, according to court records and police officials. 
Fly was credited with 19 days served, records show. 
Charges of armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and felony firearm were dismissed.
His co-defendant, William Ross IV, 17, was also scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday, but online Washtenaw County Circuit Court records on Saturday did not have his case, which could mean he was sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act. Under a HYTA sentencing, records are wiped.
Ross and Fly went to buy marijuana from a 20-year-old Ann Arbor man at a residence in the 700 block of Gott Street around 9 p.m. Jan. 7. But instead of buying drugs, the two men attempted to rob the 20-year-old in the backyard, according to police.The three men began to fight and the gun went off.
Ross was shot in the chest. The bullet grazed the 20-year-old's head. He was treated for minor injuries.
