Cameron Marcel Akins, former Cal Poly football player, was sentenced to five years and two months in prison on Monday for his part in the attempted robbery at the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house in August 2014.

Because Akins was carrying a firearm and resisting a police officer during the attempted robbery, he is facing the most serious charges.

In May 2015, Akins pleaded no contest to three felony charges against him in the case, including first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, and obstructing a police officer, according to the San Luis Obispo District Attorney’s Office.

Under the terms of this plea, Akins faced a minimum sentence of four and a half years and a maximum of 16 years in state prison. On July 11, he was officially sentenced to over five years in prison where he must serve at least 85 percent of the sentence before he is eligible for parole.

All other members, Jake Brito, Dominque Love, Cortland Fort and Kristaan Ivory have pleas that allow them to avoid jail time if they complete court-ordered requirements, according to an article in the San Luis Obispo Tribune. In September, Love was sentenced to one year in the San Luis Obispo County Jail. Ivory and Brito pleaded no contest to a conspiracy charge and were sentenced to probation. Fort also received probation.
