A 22-year-old Wichita man was sentenced in Douglas County District Court Thursday to 41 months in prison for his role in a Dec. 2, 2010, robbery.
D’Andre Tomlin had previously pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted aggravated robbery for holding three female Kansas University students at gunpoint during a robbery at an apartment in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street. Prosecutors accused Tomlin and his co-defendants — each of whom was sentenced to 11 years in prison — of entering the wrong apartment they initially planned to rob.
At sentencing, a letter from one of the victims, read by a prosecutor, said the incident was “the worst night of my life,” and “changed my life forever.”
Tomlin in court apologized to the victims.
“I wish I could change what happened,” Tomlin said.
The 41-month sentence, which also includes $1,595 in restitution fees, was recommended as part of a plea agreement. Tomlin also will have to register as a violent offender when released from prison.
Tomlin recently completed a one-year prison term stemming from a federal firearms conviction after he sold handguns to undercover federal agents between 2010 and 2011.
