LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -A Lawton man convicted of shooting and wounding a convenience store clerk in January 2014 has won an appeal to lessen his prison sentence.

Jerrell Thomas, 27, was originally sentenced to 70 years in prison for shooting the clerk in the face during a robbery. However, he won an appeal to dismiss one of the charges, which took 25 years off his sentence. The robbery charge was removed, but the charges of shooting with intent to kill and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction remained.

He'll now spend a total of 45 years in prison. He's currently being held at the Mack Alford Correctional Center in Stringtown, Oklahoma.
