BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. -- Sentencing was held Wednesday for one of the three young men tied to armed robberies at Andrews University, that caused a campus lockdown.
A Berrien County judge decided Thomas Rogers, 18, will spend anywhere from 3.5 to 15 years in prison.
Rogers was one of the three people arrested after a string of robberies at Andrews late one Saturday night in March.
Two of the victims suffered injuries to the face.
Rogers -- along with 17-year-old Roy Moore Jr., 17, and Byron Talbert, 19 -- accepted plea deals earlier this month.
Prosecutors told our reporting partners at the Herald Palladium that the motive seems to have been simple boredom.
He said the young men thought it was a game to approach people with a pellet gun that looked real.
Moore and Talbert will be sentenced Monday.
