Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Candice
Marie Eaton, 26, of Augusta, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor to one and
one half years of imprisonment and three years of supervised release for being an accessory after
the fact to the robbery of a pharmacy. She pled guilty to that crime on April 23, 2013. She was
also fined $5,000 and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,587.51.

Court records reveal that on January 22, 2013, Anthony Post (age 19) entered a CVS in
Augusta wearing sunglasses with a scarf across his face. He presented a note at the pharmacy
counter that demanded oxycodone, claimed he had a gun, and threatened to shoot if his demand
was not met. Eaton and Stephanie McCormick were in a car waiting for Post. McCormick had
planned the robbery and authored the demand note. McCormick was sentenced yesterday by
Chief U.S. District Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to three years and ten months in prison, three
years of supervised release, a fine of $1,000, and a restitution obligation. Eaton was the getaway
driver and she took a share of the stolen pills.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Augusta
Police Department.
