WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) - A 15-year-old girl from Milton-Freewater, Ore., will serve about two years or longer for robbing the Walla Walla Worm Ranch, a tackle shop and eatery.

Mayra Gomez was sentenced Friday in the Juvenile Department of Walla Walla County Superior Court to 103-129 weeks in a state juvenile institution. State authorities will determine the exact amount of time she will be incarcerated.

Judge Robert Zagelow gave Gomez credit for the 63 days she's already served in the county's Juvenile Justice Center. Gomez pleaded guilty Oct. 31 to first-degree robbery.

The robbery was Sept. 11.

An 18-year-old co-defendant, Michael J. Miranda-Vargas of Milton-Freewater, also pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and is awaiting sentencing. Miranda-Vargas faces a standard-range prison term of 31-41 months because his case was handled in adult court.
