Two former Penn State wrestlers were sentenced today to a one- to two-year county jail sentence and five years of probation and ordered to pay a $2,000 fine, as well as pay for court costs and restitution amounting to $22,000 to those they burglarized, according to a press release from the Centre County District Attorney's office.
Patrick Cummins and Eric Bradley, both former Penn State wrestlers, were issued bench warrants last week after they did not appear at their sentencing hearings. The warrants were lifted by Judge David E. Grine after Bradley and Cummins told the court they were scared to appear at the original sentencing hearing, according to the press release.
Bradley, 29, of Plaistow, N.H., and Cummins, 30, of Reinholds, Pa., pleaded guilty to all of the felony burglary charges filed against them after their arrest on May 30, 2008, District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said in December. The pair was convicted of burglarizing several Penn State fraternities between December 2007 and May 2008.
