    One of three men charged in a 2007 assault at the Chicago home of NBA star Antoine Walker (pictured) is sentenced to 21 years in prison.

    A Chicago man accused of robbing the home of former NBA star Antoine Walker pleaded guilty Tuesday and, in a plea deal offered by the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, was sentenced to 21 years in prison.

    Antoine Larkins, 30, and three other men were originally charged with armed robbery, aggravated kidnapping and home invasion in the July 9, 2007, incident at Walker’s $4 million River North home.

    On Tuesday morning, however, Larkins pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of home invasion, according to Asst. Cook County State’s Attorney Andreana Turano.  But the details outlined in the Sun-Times indicate that far more serious crimes were committed.

    Judge Kenneth Wadas sentenced Larkins’ co-defendant Gregory Reedfields, 24, to four years in prison for the robbery in March. Also charged in the crime are Phillip Allison, 30, and Demorris Hill, 27.

    Larkins and Allison were also charged with robbing New York Knicks Eddy Curry’s Burr Ridge home the same summer. That case is pending at the  Bridgeview Courthouse, Turano said.
