A co-defendant who took a plea deal in the robbery of former NFL player Javon Walker was sentenced Wednesday to three to eight years in Nevada state prison.
Prosecutor Joshua Tomsheck told the judge that Fadel had no prior felony record and that Thomas was the one who robbed and beat Walker and left the former Oakland Raiders wide receiver unconscious off a side street near the Las Vegas Strip.
