ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A man once suspected in the disappearance of Brittanee Drexel was sentenced Monday on an unrelated charge.

According to NBC affiliate WMBF, a judge sentenced Timothy Taylor to time served for his role in a 2011 robbery at a fast-food restaurant.

Federal authorities pursued charges against Taylor, hoping he would talk about the Chili teen's disappearance. But Taylor maintained he was not involved in Drexel's presumed murder. 

Drexel was 17 years old when she disappeared while on spring break in Myrtle Beach in April 2009.

Taylor faced up to 10 years in prison on the robbery charge.
