Queensland's ''buxom bandit'', who gained global notoriety when CCTV footage of her robbery went viral, has been sentenced to four years in jail.

Tonee Walker, 22, got away with $300 after holding up a Gold Coast service station in July 2012.

Police said her getaway driver, Alexander Spinks, told them Walker pulled down her top to expose more of her breasts just before the robbery so she could give the male attendant something to look at.

Walker's barrister told the court his client was high on prescription drugs and amphetamines at the time.

Walker, who has already served eight months behind bars, will be eligible for parole in November.

Spinks pleaded guilty to a string of offences, including accessory to armed robbery, and was sentenced to two years, suspended immediately.
