A 17-year-old was charged Thursday on one count of armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

According to the State Attorney's Office, Sean Adams was having a conversation with a 14-year-old in August 2013 when Adams pulled out a pistol, pointed at at the victim and demanded the victim's cellphone.

After the 14-year-old handed over the cellphone, Adams fled the area and was later arrested on a warrant.

The State Attorney's Office said Adams was convicted in 2012 of armed robbery.

Adams faces up to life in prison, with a 15-year minimum mandatory, as a habitual violent felony offender.
