A man who pled guilty to invading ex-NBA star Antoine Walker's home was sentenced Friday to 13 years in prison, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Walker testified during his first trial that Demorris Hill, 28, was one of four men who broke into his River North home, bound him with duct tape and put in him a closet while they robbed him of jewelry, money and the keys to his Mercedes.
The men were reportedly armed and got away with more than $200,000 in cash and valuables, according to the Tribune. The robbery occurred during the summer of 2007.
Phillip Allison, Antoine Larkins and Gregory Reedfields were also charged in the case. Allison's case is ongoing.
