A 19-year-old Topeka man who was the driver in connection with an October shooting outside a Lawrence apartment was sentenced to serve three years on probation Thursday.
Desmond J. Jackson had pleaded no-contest in January to two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. Prosecutors had accused Jackson of participating in a scheme with Christopher Bush and two other Topeka woman to rob two Lawrence men on Oct. 11. One of the Lawrence men was shot in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane.
Jackson was accused of driving Bush, who was sentenced to serve five years in prison for the shooting, away from the scene.
