LAWRENCE, Kan. — A Missouri man was sentenced to five years in prison for his role in a robbery on the University of Kansas campus.
Mykel Dantae Karlyle, 21, of Belton was also ordered Tuesday to register as a violent offender after serving his prison sentence. He had pleaded no contest to one count of aggravated robbery.
Prosecutors said Karlyle used a handgun to rob a student of marijuana in April 2009 in a residence hall parking lot.
The Lawrence Journal-World reported that Karlyle also faces aggravated robbery and aggravated battery charges for a 2011 incident in Shawnee County.
A co-defendant in the Lawrence case, Terrance A. Dean, 21, of Topeka, faces sentencing Feb. 28 for conspiracy to commit robbery.
