Here is the rest of the story from ESPN.com:
A 30-year-old man has been sentenced to 21 years in prison for robbing NBA star Antoine Walker at gunpoint at his Chicago home.
Antoine Larkins pleaded guilty Tuesday to home invasion charges. He and three others were initially charged with armed robbery, aggravated kidnapping and home invasion.
Authorities said Walker was pulling into his garage on July 9, 2007, when several armed men ambushed him, forced him and an assistant inside his home and took a car, cash and jewelry.
Well, I think that sentence might deter someone from trying to rob Antoine Walker again. I’ll be a little honest and say that is one of the few times that I have seen a twenty-year sentence for a home invasion where no one was seriously injured. I’m not saying that I disagree with the sentencing but more along the lines that twenty-one years is a long time to be in jail for a robbery where no one was injured.
Just to think, someone got 21 years in prison for robbing Antoine Walker. I wonder what the logic was. “Yeah, I’m going to get a group of my boys and then rob Antoine Walker? I might get some money and jewelry.” I’m missing the logic in this. Just to think their sentencing may have been worst if they robbed someone who was a better player than Antoine Walker. Robbing Lebron James probably gets you life in prison.
Oh well, we officially proven the theory, Robbing Antoine Walker=Bad Idea.
