PORT ALLEN, La. (AP) - A former LSU football tight end for the Tigers 2003 national championship team has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for his role in shooting at a Port Allen truck stop casino more than three years ago.

Demetri Robinson pleaded guilty Aug. 18 to three counts of attempted second-degree murder in the Sept. 18, 2011, shooting at the Cajun Circus Casino.

Prosecutors say Robinson shot a cashier then fired shots at two other employees after he was asked to leave the casino. Robinson entered the plea one day before he was to stand trial.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1AMOSoR ) state District Judge Robin Free handed down the sentence Thursday.

Fifty years is the maximum sentence for attempted second-degree murder, but Free set each count to be served concurrently.
