TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka man has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison for luring a carjacking victim to a motel with an online advertisement and robbing a store.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 26-year-old Wesley Lavern Harris was sentenced Wednesday for carjacking and robbery. He admitted to leaving the victim in the Topeka motel’s bathtub after taking the man’s keys, money and car. Harris and others had lured the victim to the motel in June by advertising sexual services online.

Harris also admitted that the next day, he robbed a Lawrence store and threatened to kill an employee.
