Last summer, Jordan Brand dropped the "Bordeaux" Air Jordan VII Retro. For most 'heads, this meant the first chance at a remastered version of the sneaker, and just the second opportunity to cop them since the original 1992 release. However, one Connecticut man apparently saw dollar signs when he came across a group of teenagers camping out overnight to cop the shoes.
24-year-old Angel Cintron was one of three men who robbed a group of teens at gunpoint during the release last year, reports CBS Connecticut. Cintron and two other men made off with cash, cell phones, and a laptop belonging to the teens after the robbery outside of a Waterbury, Conn. sportswear store, and now he's finally facing the music.
Cintron pled guilty to first-degree robbery under a plea deal, along with additional larceny and weapons charges, and received a sentence of eight years in prison. He's the second member of the group to be sentenced, with a third still awaiting his day in court.
