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.

Now, if he were a gun dealer at an Arizona gun show, selling these guns to a front man for the Mexican Mafia, the NRA would have been all over it in defense of his second amendment rights.

And the difference between the dealer at the Arizona gun show and our Attorney General is what?

Make a note of this little dude's name. We'll be seeing him again in these pages after he gets out of the crossbar hotel and goes back to his chosen craft.

I remember Vern well. He caused me to vote for the only Republican I ever voted for when Vern ran for Governor as a Democrat. Then you know what that Republican did? Everything he said he was going to do. And I voted for him. I've been voting for third party candidates ever since.
