He pleaded guilty to charges of armed robbery while masked and assault and battery on a disabled person.
Prosecutors say McKenzie and an accomplice followed then-48-year-old Grace Carmody and her mother home on Feb. 26, 2014 after the victim was seen cashing in a $400 lottery ticket at a gas station.
Prosecutors say McKenzie pushed Carmody down, threatened to shoot her and stole her lottery winnings. Carmody has cerebral palsy.
McKenzie was ordered to pay $400 in restitution to Carmody.
