A man and a woman who were a part of a group who robbed a reported drug dealer will be sentenced in October.

Paul Michael Gavin, 20, and Allison Clements, 21, pleaded guilty Monday in provincial court in St. John’s to a charge of robbery.

One count of assault causing bodily harm was withdrawn against each of them by the Crown in exchange for the guilty pleas.

Gavin’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 7, while Clements’ hearing is set for Oct. 9.

Clements also faces several counts of theft from unrelated incidents.

Defence lawyers Michael Ralph (for Gavin) and Arnold Hussey (for Clements) both requested pre-sentence reports, with a risk assessment.

Gavin and Clements are in custody.

Another woman, Jessica Bonnell, already pleaded guilty to her involvement in the robbery and was sentenced to nine months in jail.

Police are still searching for another man, Dillon Downer, who is also believed to have been involved in the robbery.

It happened Oct. 9, 2011, when a man was attacked by four people near the west gate of Bowring Park in the capital city.

The group stole prescription pills, as well as a number of personal items.

More details of what happened will be disclosed during the sentencing hearings.
