An Upstate man pleaded guilty after several witnesses testified about a 2011 holdup where he claimed to say "no games, no heroes, 30 seconds," while robbing Clemson University's health clinic, according to prosecutors.

Thomas Carl Wyatt, 28, pleaded guilty to strong-arm robbery on Tuesday, according to the Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor's office.

Prosecutors said on Feb. 14, 2011, Wyatt showed a note to the pharmacist at Redfern Health Center demanding drugs and made the "no games" statement. They said he was wearing a hood and sunglasses, and had his hand inside a black bag at the time.

Witnesses came forward and identified him through a composite sketch, the solicitor said. His case was headed to trial but chose to enter the plea after several witnesses testified.

The presiding judge sentenced Wyatt to 12 years suspended upon service of two years plus three years of probation. According to solicitors, he can serve the two years on house arrest with monitoring.
