Sentencing delayed for robbing Holy Cross College students

Sentencing has been pushed back yet again for the last of the teens charged with robbing two Holy Cross College students, now three years ago.

19 year-old Michael Burnett admitted to robbery and confinement, but the State of Indiana agreed to drop a carjacking charge.

Back in September of 2009, Burnett and three others assaulted and robbed two students who were walking to their car.

They threw those students in the trunk and drove to area ATM's, taking cash out of their accounts. Police found the students in the trunk the next morning.

Now in return for his plea, Burnett won't get more than 30 years behind bars. His partners in crime are already in prison. Burnett's sentencing hearing is now scheduled for October 1.
