Jerry Gair Jr., former ISU defensive back, was given the heavy sentence due on three charges, armed robbery, gun possession and on-going criminal conduct. The on-going criminal conduct charge resulted in the largest amount of prison time-25 years. Gair also was sentenced to ten years for robbery in the 2nd degree and two years for the gun charge.
The judge revoked a previously deferred judgment of probation and implemented a concurrent 5-year prison sentence.
According to earlier Tribune reports, Gair was initially arrested for theft in the second degree last January along with former teammate Tyease Thompson. Last October, he received a three-year probation sentence, including a mandate for community service and full-time status as a student or employee. However, Gair violated probation when he was indicted for the armed robberies of Fuel Right, 4510 Mortensen Road, on Nov. 27 and Kwik Shop, 125 6th St., on Dec. 4 last year.
