Former Kansas University football player Jeremiah Letrell Edwards, 22, was sentenced to three years probation this week in connection with a May 13 robbery of cash and marijuana at gunpoint from a man at a home in the 1900 block of Camelback Drive.
If Edwards, a Garland, Texas native, violates probation on his felony robbery conviction, he could serve 32 months in prison. He was charged in the case alongside his brother Joshua Edwards and fellow former KU football players Chris Martin and Chris Omigie. As part of Jeremiah Edwards' sentencing, he must not make contact with Martin or the victim of the May robbery.
Martin was dismissed from the football program in June and faces a November trial in a robbery case stemming from the May home invasion. He is scheduled to appear in Douglas County District Court for trial on Nov. 25 and faces one count of aggravated robbery.
Omigie, meanwhile, is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 31.
