A former army ranger will not serve any more prison time for an armed robbery in San Carlos.

Capt. Sgt. Binkley was sentenced to five years probation Friday.

Binkley used a gun to steal prescription painkillers from a Walgreen's store in 2006.

He told ABC7 in a jailhouse interview that he became addicted to the drugs after army doctors prescribed them for a fractured hip.

Binkley served in Bosnia and suffered from post traumatic stress disorder.
